Petra Tucker visits Albergue Casa Hogar site
I went through the (Mexican Customs) declare line and was given the green light. I had $600.00 worth of food, cleaning supplies, laundry detergent, and 12 storage containers. Nov. through Jan. you can pass up to $500.00 of merchandise. They are not permitting meat across the border, so (ACH) is buying meat in Ojinaga.
Donations from Rio Foundation, Porters, DIF (Desarrollo de la Familia), the Mennonites, churches, grocery stores and bakeries, people dropping by, and the motel across the street supplement the CHOI food budget. The kids eat a lot of rice and beans but, thankfully, have enough to eat. Lunch today was very tasty; I sampled it, see picture.
