Casa Maria Asilo

Hello Rob!
I was confused last week when suddenly donations were being made to my GoFundMe page for the senior home in La Noria. I was grateful but I had not recently solicited funding through that site. US donors are now able to write checks to my church to receive a tax deductible receipt.
I quickly posted an update to the page and hope the donors have seen it, we have accomplished much in just a few years.
I would like to briefly tell your readers that each week we supplement payroll and provide fresh produce and protein for better health and nutrition.
As you know, the new local government and DIF have been at work in Zihua for just over a year now. Liz has listened to the complaints my group and I had about the horrific condition of this facility under the former administration; she has worked to make some serious changes, one of which is rehabbing (and new construction) to an existing property nearby! If all goes well the residents will be moved before the end of the year. The name of the residence will change, but the name of our group will remain.
I would like to refer anyone who is interested, to join the FB page I created a few years ago.."Friends of Casa Maria Asilo" and very quickly we became a group to be reckoned with. You will find detailed information on our site.
Last February, before DIF had mad a firm commitment to move the residents to a building far more appropriate, we raised funds to replace the existing roof that did little to protect the residents from the rain. These funds will now be diverted to assist in completing the construction, as needed, under my direction.
Thank you to all of you who so generously help us meet our commitment to provide love, compassion, better health and welfare to a very needy group of at risk seniors.
