World Vision - See for yourself their work in Mexico (Five Point Five)

Despite the rapid progress seen in many parts of Mexico in recent years, vast swaths of the country still suffer under terrible conditions of poverty. In indigenous and isolated communities, lack of opportunities and resources force many into brutal conditions that dramatically affects living situations. As always, it is the children who suffer most.

In highly marginalized regions of Mexico, up to 36 percent of children age 5 and under are affected by chronic malnutrition, which can cause a range of debilitating physical and mental illnesses. Their education suffers, and reading comprehension is badly affected. In addition, 13 children die each day due to a lack of clean drinking water, which could easily be avoided with cheap and readily available tools.

World Vision is an international humanitarian organization dedicated to the well-being and protection of children living on the margins of society. With operations in 98 countries, it has spent 60 years working with the most vulnerable communities in order to alleviate the worst effects of poverty, regardless of race, religion or gender. Active in Mexico since 1982, the organization is now deeply involved in communities in Mexico, particularly in the states of Oaxaca, Chiapas, Guerrero, San Luis Potosí, Veracruz and the State of Mexico.

...This April 30, World Vision wants to celebrate by offering more children the opportunity for a secure and happy environment for their development. Through the campaign, “Patrocina Una Historia 2015,” the organization is seeking 8,000 new sponsors for Mexican boys and girls.

Changing the lives of the most vulnerable is not easy, but Mexico is a country characterized by great solidarity and philanthropy. If you feel you can contribute, or for more information, please visit the campaign website at
