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.

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.

Please share this letter with family and friends and know that any contribution will be used to impact families in Mexico directly.Read more
