It is estimated that around 412,000 children in Mexico live without parental care. The main reasons leading to the loss of parental care are maternal mortality, femicide, AIDS and Mexico’s on-going drug cartel violence. (SOS Children’s Villages International)

“Today, I am 20 years old and I have been at Casa Hogar Alegría for 13 years now. Casa Hogar Alegría gave me the opportunity to meet a new world that up until that moment was foreign to me. Today, I’m in college, for which I am very grateful. It’s a huge accomplishment for me.”
