Hospital Materno Infantil Guadalupe Victoria

IWC members meet monthly to make Baby Blankets for young mothers in need. This charity initiative began years ago when a Newcomers member saw babies going home wrapped in newspapers!! With a broken heart she got into action making simple blankets for the new mothers to wrap their babies in. You do not need to know how to sew, we even provide the scissors!!  All you have to do is join us and help cut fringe onto warm cozy fabrics. Our goal each month is to cut 150 or more blankets from a bolt of fabric, all while enjoying each others company and getting to know one another while supporting a good cause.

The Baby Blankets team also collects donations for the hospital dependent on the particular need any given month.

Please email Rhonda Jones at rhondajones@shaw.ca if you would like to get involved or would like to make a private donation.

Albergue Infantil-Ines Maria Gasca, Casa Hogar

The Albergue is located in San Miguel de Chapultepec and is ran by 3 Catholic Nuns for girls ages ranging from 5 and 12 years old. These girls come from extremely poor families, and the albergue provides a safe place for them to call home.  They also provide all the basic needs such as; clothing, food, counseling services, schooling, books, and medical needs. On average there are about 15 girls that live in the home at one time.

Through the IWC Charity team, members coordinate monthly lunches, special parties for the girls, and offer homework tutoring. IWC also coordinates other donations such as clothing, toiletries, and food. The girls are a delight to work with, and are very appreciative of the time and attention that we give.  All they need is someone to care.

Casa de Ora (FundaciĆ³n Ora)

On the 3rd Monday of every month without fail, volunteers gather to prepare a meal for over 100 hungry senior citizens in a surrounding community of Mexico City. First at 10am we meet at Ora home, where we prepare a hot meal and divide dispensas evenly into 100 bags to hand out to the seniors.  At noon, we load the food into our cars and vans for delivery to San Fernando, located 15 minutes away. Volunteers set out the food and distribute lunch plates to the seniors, followed by birthday cake and a gift for the seniors celebrating a birthday that month. We typically wrap up the day by 3pm.    

You do not need to know how to cook to help. You can volunteer to help prepare the food and gifts at Ora's from 10-12, or you can help by meeting us to pass out the food, or you can do both.

Please email Lynda Opocensky at opocensky.lg@gmail.com or Ora at 55-7022-4316 if you would like to get involved or would like to make a private donation

Casa Hogar Las Nieves

This orphanage has operated since 1968 and houses girls from the ages of 5-12. The girls are cared after by a small group of nuns, they do their chores during the early mornings, attend volunteer classes on certain days of the week and then receive basic formal education in the afternoons. The girls are from all around the city and other municipalities. They come from very vulnerable families of extreme poverty and from aggressive environments within their home. They come from socially and economically deprived families who cannot afford to care for them at home, therefore send them to the orphanage.

IWC members gather weekly to provide English tutoring for the girls along with celebrating birthdays and running a weekly collections for any items that they may be short on such as, bread, vegetables, toilet paper etc.
