A visit by Misión México’s Deborah Grossman

Misión México (UK) founder, Deborah Grossman, is spending the run up to Christmas with Pam and Alan and the family in Tapachula. Check out what she has been up to out there!

I’ve been in Tapachula now for just over a week and I’m slowly settling into life here. That means getting used to the heat, the noise, the smells, the food and of course the kids at Misión México. It’s been a full on week with meetings, hanging out with the kids, meeting the new niños, planning fundraising tours, organising our new youth transition project and catching up with Pamela Skuse and Alan on what’s been happening and their plans for Mision Surf. Never a dull moment that’s for sure.

It’s been amazing to have Steven Marks from Guzman y Gomez here as well as Moacir ZeledonStefan HuntCampbell BrownJonno Durrant and Samantha Durrant who have been working hard on plans for promoting the amazing work being done here.

Robbie Warden has also joined the filming team and is doing an awesome job taking incredible pictures of the kids. Hearing the kids stories, new and old, is yet again humbling. It never fails to amaze me the work that Pam and Alan do here; the dedication and energy that volunteers give to help and the courage that the children show to move forward regardless of the suffering they have experienced. Yet again a privilege to be working for such an awesome organisation; one that is truly making a difference in the lives of children and all those who have the good fortune to be part of this incredible project.
