Hello, my name is Ana Rodriguez, I live in Cerro Azul. I am the Corazón Community Coordinator for the Tecate communities. I joined the Corazón family as a volunteer in 2009; over the past 12 years, I have been working on construction and community leadership programs and activities. In 2019, after many years of volunteering with Corazón, I was offered a full-time position at Corazón. It is rewarding to serve communities in Tecate and work alongside Corazón 's U.S. volunteers.Read more

Through your support, we assisted sixteen families where members have lost their jobs and are in immediate need of assistance for food and medicine. Corazon will provide between $50 and $100 per family this week, depending on family size, to help provide food and health care expenses.
Our Mexican staff is actively reaching out to the Corazon communities, and there are many that still need financial assistance to bring immediate aid and comfort to their families. Please share this letter with family and friends and know that any contribution will be used to impact families in Mexico directly.Read more
