Mision Mexico (UK)

Charity description

Mision Mexico (UK) logo
Misión México provides a loving, secure home for children of all ages who have been abused, neglected, orphaned or abandoned, and mostly from backgrounds of extreme poverty. The number of children in their care changes constantly but on average they care for between 40 and 50 children on a permanent basis.
Almost all of the children have suffered extreme poverty and abuse. Some have experienced unspeakable violence.

In November 2000, Alan and Pamela Skuse left their home in Australia, to volunteer at an orphanage in Tapachula for 12 months.
The organisation they were assisting closed down after six months, leaving the Skuses with a life changing decision. To return to Australia, or take on the overwhelming challenge of caring for the remaining seven children full time.
The thought of leaving the kids, who would go back to the streets, and lives of abuse, was not an option. So despite the lack of resources and support, Pam and Alan decided to take on the huge responsibility of establishing their own refuge.
’Albergue, Misión México, Dando Amor, Vida y Esperanza’ was formed, with the dream of creating a family home, rather than an institution.
México has helped transform the lives of more than 250 children from various
circumstances of need.
