caring action for children
helping abandoned children in Mexico since 1966
with support from the USA, Mexico, Norway, Sweden, and Denmark
Our Two-Fold Mission
We at Caring Action support several Children's Homes in Mexico, where we are continually working on new projects and renovations to enhance the children's lives.
We have two main goals:
  1. To respond to the needs of children and youth in Mexico by providing food, housing, clothing, education, and spiritual guidance.
  2. To assist concerned Mexicans in taking full responsibility for property and operations of the Children's Homes.
