Since that time, The Kids Foundation has helped 42 children. These kids have been seen by one or more of the doctors and dentists we work with.
Here are photos of a few of the docs and dentists and some of the kids:
Our doctors and dentists routinely give us considerable discounts on their usual fees, and Dra. Gloria and Dra. Irma do a great deal of work for the children at no charge.
There is no shortage of children that need help. This afternoon ,when I took little Yamileth home after her dentist appointment, we were immediately surrounded by kids and their mamas, asking if they, too, can go to the dentist. These are children from extremely poor families. They have never seen a doctor or a dentist in their lives. Many have terrible dental problems. Some have vision problems, others need to see the pediatrician.
We want you to know how very much we appreciate your gifts and your prayers. Every penny donated goes directy to pay for doctor and dentist bills and prescriptions for the kids. Some children require very expensive and specialized care that they would otherwise not be able to have. We cannot change the world, We cannot change Mexico, but we can relieve the pain and suffering of one little child at a time. I wish you could see how these kids just LOVE the dentist...and I wish you could see the expression on the face of a mother who is so touched that someone cares about her child.
We operate on a very tight budget every month, and would love to be able to help more children. Whenever you are able to help the Foundation, it will be very much appreciated.
Please be sure to see the new pictures attatched to this letter.
Thank you for your help and prayers,
