The mission of Tijuana Mission Outreach Foundation is to help in multiple ways the impoverished people of La Orita, Tijuana, Mexico who are frozen in place. Gifts of food, clothing, buildings and emergency funds are our primary means of help. A smile of appreciation for a loaf of bread is a powerful encouragement to strive to do a lot more. This is a powerful opportunity for Americans to see real poverty first hand. Walking down the dusty road; seeing what people call home; seeing their water supply in the blue barrels at the corner of their “houses”; people cooking outside; the outhouses (most open to the stars); the hand washed clothes hanging on the line; the exposed electrical wires running along the ground are a real eye opener. This evokes appreciation, sympathy, and generosity.
