What Can You Do?

Paula Claussen CNN Hero

In January of 1991 a friend invited Paula Claussen to make the short trip from her home in San Diego, California, across the border to Tijuana, Mexico, to donate clothing to people in need. Claussen didn’t expect that day to change the course of her life.

“I was shocked by the conditions that I saw down there,” she said. “It was something that touched me very deeply, and I determined to try to do something about it. “.

As a direct result Project Mercy was created to improve living conditions and eventually, to build solid homes. The nonprofit has constructed more than 1,600 free homes for people living in Tijuana’s most desperate communities.
