My Visit To The Orphanage In Mexico

Mi Visita Al Orfanato

At my mother's office they raised funds to buy some much needed supplies for an orphanage in Tijuana, Mexico called La Roca Casa Del Niño. As soon as I heard this I immediately said I wanted to help out. It was such an awesome opportunity.  Awesome in the sense that it was a very unique experience to help some one in need in a very direct way. My mother and I bought the children sneakers and as I was reading the list with their names and ages and shoe size I was so moved by the thought that these children did not have a parent to take care of them and buy them shoes; something that seems so basic and accessible to most of us.

En la oficina de mi mama recaudaron fondos para cubrir necesidades del  orfanato La Roca Casa del Niño, localizado  en Tijuana, México. Tan pronto escuché esto le dije que quería ayudar. Fue una  experiencia  especial. Fue una experiencia fuera de lo ordinario el ayudar a alguien de una manera tan directa. Mi mamá y yo compramos los tenis de los niños, yo leía los nombres de una lista con sus edades y el tamaño del zapato, me sentí conmovido al darme cuenta que estos niños no tenían padres que les cuidaran y proveyeran de zapatos, algo tan básico y accesible para la mayor parte de nosotros.

We drove down to Tijuana and arrived at the Orphanage. The Kids were playing and got so excited as soon as they saw us. They were called to gather in the living room and we got to call each one of them by name, give them a pair of shoes and see their faces light up. While they waited their turn they each enjoyed a small bag of chips we brought them.

Manejamos hasta Tijuana y llegamos al orfanato. Los niños estaban jugando afuera y estaban tan entusiasmados tan pronto nos vieron. Se les llamó para que fueran todos a sentarse a una sala y se les llamó uno a uno por su nombre para darles sus zapatos y sus caritas se veían sonrientes. Mientras cada uno esperaba a ser llamado estaban disfrutando de una bolsita de papitas que les llevamos a cada uno.

We were given a tour of the orphanage and it was very humbling to see the conditions they live in. The place is very clean and they are making due with what they have. Everything they have is through donations be it labor or actual supplies and food.

Se nos llevó a un recorrido por el orfanato, muy humilde las condiciones en las cuales viven. El lugar muy limpio y hacen lo mas que pueden con lo que tienen. Todo lo que tienen es donado ya sea mediante trabajo o  la comida y suministros para poder vivir.

These are all the kids! My mom and I are all the way in the back. It took us a couple of minutes to get all the kids situated. What an awesome time.

Estos son todos los niños! Mi mamá y yo estamos atrás. Nos tomo unos cuantos minutos para que los niños se acomodaran. Fue una experiencia inolvidable.
