our recent holiday trip to

Oaxaca

DECEMBER  2019

Give from The Heart team members had a great opportunity to travel to Oaxaca, Mexico and provide a holiday party for children from very poor neighborhoods.  Each child received a toy followed by a group pinata game that brought lots of fun and laughter to everyone. 

OUR PROGRAMS IN MEXICO

MANOS DE AYUDA (MADA)

“Home Away From Home”

 

The hospital in Oaxaca does not have adequate space for

families waiting for the relatives of their patients and in many

cases only allows the entrance of one family member so the

rest of the family remains outside, often times sleeping on

the streets, in the rain or other adverse conditions.

The capacity of services provided in comparison with the

demand that arises is insufficient. This situation brings a

greater psychological, financial and emotional burden on the

families of the hospitalized relative.

 

 

 
With nowhere to stay, many families sleep on the street, while their family member is treated at the main hospital in Oaxaca.  Often times the families travel miles or days to the hospital.

 

Manos de Ayuda is an organization dedicated to helping the

under-privileged in Oaxaca, Mexico.

 

MADA has searched for a way to provide a “home away from home”

for these families.  The search led to Give From the Heart for assistance

and support of the mission of MADA. 

 

Guiding the mission of MADA is the value of love. We believe that

love is the means to change peoples’ attitudes and make a difference

in the way in which the world is moving.

 

 

 

OUR goal is to provide

a place to stay for

the relatives of patients hospitalized

in the OAXACA Hospital

FACTS ABOUT OAXACA

 

  • Oaxaca, Mexico ranks as the 2nd poorest state in Mexico.

  • Over 76% of its residents live in extreme poverty, lacking basic necessities such as food, water, education and healthcare (national average: 42-45%).

  • In Oaxaca there is only one hospital bed per 1,000 residents.

  • Statistics show that Oaxaca health services are inadequate and insufficient. Clinics, hospitals and public specialty services are located primarily in the capital city.  These facilities do not have the capacity to serve the Oaxacan population from rural areas.

  • 33% of the population is indigenous and it is among these groups that the deepest levels of social and economic marginalization prevail.
