Right now, because of all the stairs and no elevator in our facility, ChuCho has to be physically carried from one floor to another. But In our new facility ChuCho will have a room designed to accommodate his disability. He will also be able to move about on his own... if he has a powered wheelchair. The cost of a powered wheelchair is a minimum of $3,000. We hope to surprise him with a new wheelchair during the New Building Dedication Service on February 3rd, 2010.
If you would like to help, send a check written to the Church at the address below with ChuCho or Wheelchair in the memo:

This is a ministry in Mexico City sponsored by Santa Fe Baptist Church. 100% of the funds received for Rivers Of Mercy Children's Home go directly to the Home and are tax deductable. I am the senior Pastor of this Church. The Church phone is 409-925-3411. Funds are deposited weekly into a US Bank Account which is under the control of Dr. Leonardo Rivas M.D., the director of the Home. Funds sent to the home are put to use immediatly to feed and care for children who are rescued from the streets of Mexico City, arguably the second largest city in the world. With the completion of the new Facility next month we will be able to provide a home to 160 children. Our capacity right now is 40-50. And we generally have 40-50 children living in our Home.
