misión méxico children's refuge
In November 2000, Alan and Pamela Skuse left their home on the Sunshine Coast in Australia, to volunteer at an orphanage in Tapachula for twelve months. The organisation they were assisting closed down after six months, leaving the Skuses with a life changing decision. To return to Australia, or take on the overwhelming challenge of caring for the remaining seven children full time.
The thought of leaving the kids, who would go back to the streets, and lives of abuse, was not an option. So despite the lack of resources and support, Pam and Alan decided to take on the huge responsibility of establishing their own refuge.
’Albergue, Misión México, Dando Amor, Vida y Esperanza’ (Refuge, Mission Mexico, Giving Love, Life and Hope) was formed, with the dream of creating a family environment, rather than an institution.
