We have some great news. Thanks to the Rotary Club of West El Paso Foundation, donations to support Tree of Hopes will continue to be tax deductible. The Foundation recently helped Tree if Hopes purchase a new oven for the Tree of Hopes facility in Juarez plus dishes and cups for the kitchen and a badly needed 300-gallon water tank. Water to the facility has been very unreliable and a second water tank is important to not only all the people being fed in the Comedor, but also for volunteers working there from the area and all across the country.
To give you some idea of how many people use the facility this week we are expecting a work crew from Casas Por Cristo coming to the area to build more homes plus more refugees from Central America. Both the US and Mexican governments need the help of churches and humanitarian organizations on both sides of the border to help care for refugees traveling to the border. Over the past few weeks Tree of Hopes has helped to care for nearly 100 people from countries like Honduras, El Salvador, Nicaragua, Panama, Cuba and Mexico. We have no idea how much help the Government of Mexico will ask of us. The need is great and we need help maintaining and repairing the facility’s infrastructure.
