The children of Los Angelitos need room to supplement their current, crowded Spanish colonial home. An additional location has been secured, but there is hardly enough room to accommodate 35 children and the Los Angelitos staff.
Construction of a new facility which will include two dormitories, a large kitchen and dining room, and a spacious living room is beginning soon. Multi-platinum vocal artist Chynna Phillips Baldwin and her actor husband William Baldwin have donated $5,000 to jump start the fundraising. However, we will need additional funds to continue with the construction.
Please join us in our work to help the children of Los Angelitos Orphanage and allow their dreams to come true. No amount is too small.
In February of 2010, three musicians from Atlanta, Georgia shared their love of music with the children and staff of Los Angelitos Orphanage. A beautiful time was had by all and now we would like to share it with you.
The children are all trying to improve their computer skills to be more productive in the future, but mostly have old throw away computers to practice on. Any not-so-old computers would be greatly appreciated, especially laptops due to limited space at the orphanage.
The children are back to school and what a scramble!! Three graduated from elementary school and entered middle school, three in middle school, and three in high school. Seven others are in elementary school. Needless to say, things are pretty busy around here, and the expenses ... wow, a whopping $120 dollars for books per student creates another layer of need. In addition, there are new uniforms, new shoes, and all the extras that go with getting back to school. In Mexico students have to buy their own books, uniforms, and shoes.
The weather's been super hot these days (107F and above) but the kids keep cool off at the beach on their days off. The Pacific Ocean is only 12 miles away now that there is the new four lane highway from Tijuana to Rosarito Beach. Thanks to Friends of Los Niños and Grace Presbyterian Church the children were outfitted in style with new bathing suits.
