Project Mercy works with families living in colonias on the eastern edges of Tijuana where poverty and harsh living conditions are common. The weather can range from 100 degrees in the summer to freezing temperatures in the winter. It is a hard life and families often go without basic needs such as food.
In addition to building homes and providing educational opportunities, Project Mercy also distributes food baskets on a regular basis. This week one of our Mexican crew, Nacho, and long time volunteer Doug Hoffman were able to buy and deliver about a weeks worth of groceries to five families in the areas we serve.
