NPH Mexico children are safe.
September 20, 2017 - Mexiko
It’s times like this when we are reminded of the importance of Family. As an update from NPH Mexico - the Miacatlán home has regained electricity, and the local team is working tirelessly on estimating repairs and planning support for the outside community as well. These are a few photos that show a glimpse of the earthquake's impact on our Miacatlán and Cuernavaca homes.
Thanks to all for your prayers and thoughts during this challenging time.
