Also: a once-a-month mothers’ group. They are constructing a building nearby with a much-needed on-site kitchen.
WHAT THEY NEED: They are supported by many Canadian churches and the San Carlos Community Church locally. They need almost everything for the new kitchen: (microwave, convection oven, large oven pans and cake molds, new kids dishes, Igloo water cooler, commercial dough mixer) as well as school and crafts supplies and a camera. New toys would be welcomed for Christmas and Children’s Day (April 30). Groups also can volunteer to lead an activity or a game with the children.

LOCATION: It is in Colonia Independencia in south Guaymas. Drive past the stadium (Unidad Deportiva) and veer left along the water.
