Reynosa is a border town in the northern part of Mexico, across the border from Hidalgo, Texas. This area is home to several “slum towns”, where children and families are often found living in desperate conditions. In the mid ‘80s, a local missionary began bringing food to hungry kids in poor areas near her home. After bringing several of them home to receive medical attention, it became clear that the need was greater than she could handle on her own. She eventually acquired a small plot of land in a busy area of town and the original home was established as a home for poor girls in vulnerable situations. Later on, she was able to acquire a larger property which today has become a home for boys and girls who are at risk between the ages of 3 and 16. They are also given counseling and support to attend secondary and tertiary school. ChildCry sponsors three meals and a snack daily for the kids. A typical meal can include chicken, rice, frijoles, coconut water, and yogurt with fruit.
