Missions Update: Ninos de Mexica

Niños de México is a Christian mission supported by ERCC. They operate five children’s homes in the Mexico City area. Each home is designed to function as a family. With Christian house parents, their kids, and 11-19 children, Niños’ homes are truly loving and caring places for the children to grow and learn the love of Jesus.

Update from Steve Ross, Executive Director

This has certainly been a unique year with all that has happened in the U.S. and around the world. When the pandemic began in March 2020, we were unable to take in new kids who were in extreme circumstances! Since September, we have had multiple calls regarding kids in urgent need of rescuing. YOUR HELP IS NEEDED in order to respond to these requests!

Last month we were able to reopen our homes and WELCOME a family we had planned to take before the Coronavirus forced us to lock down. Carlos, age 8, Mayrin age 7, and Mia age 5 joined our Genesis and Jireh homes. The children suffered severe neglect, malnutrition, and had never attended school. It can take time for kids to adjust to new rules, routines, activities and, of course, new “siblings”. The kids are doing great now! It was fun to watch one of the little boys at the Genesis home, six year-old Jesus Salvador, take Carlos under his wing and show him where everything was and what he needed to do to fit into the family.

More children need YOUR help! There is an urgent need – we closed 2020 caring for 104 kids. Calls for help keep coming in, asking us to provide a safe home for more children who are living in desperate situations. YOU CAN provide hope and a new future for the kids who are being cared for by Ninos right now and those who will be welcomed in over the coming months! If you are able consider a special gift. A gift of any size will help us respond to the calls. More children need your help!
