CORAZON DE VIDA :: SWEET DREAMS FOR THE BABIES Posted on 20 Jun 15:22
We are getting very close to completion of the baby dorm at the Casa Hogar Sion orphanage! Your support of this project allowed us to procure the land in 2017-2018 and start construction in late December 2018, and despite a very wet winter, we have made great progress. The construction team plans to finish the building by the end of next month. The Mexican social services agency will be ready to place infants as soon as the dorm is completed, giving these babies a chance to start their lives in a safe and stable environment.
CLICK HERE for photos of the project to date, from bare land to a beautiful 1100 sq.ft dorm that will house up to 13 infants, a caretaker, a small kitchen and laundry room!
Over $77,000 has been raised for the construction via the BABY DORM FUNDRAISING PAGE, from individual donors, team fundraising, matching funds, and events. Others donors helped with the land purchase and the hiring of a Tijuana real estate attorney to record the sale and receive title.
We just added another $15,000 to the budget to secure the perimeter of the dorm which is in an open space adjacent to the orphanage. The additional funds will be for a half block wall and wrought iron fence in the rear and front and to level the ground surrounding the building for proper usage. We are asking for one last push of donations to help us reach our goal. If you can help, please make a donation via the FUNDRAISING PAGE, or send a check to Corazon de Vida.
In the Fall, we would like to invite you to the inauguration of the nursery and to share in the joy of one day having a full house of 13 infants. We will keep you informed of the date with hope that you can join us.
Thank you for your love and support of Corazon de Vida and especially for the blessing of allowing us to build this dorm. We hope that with this last donation push, that we can complete the project within the next month.
