Por Los Ninos have covered every colonia at least once and a lot of families up to 4 times. We have spent 752,097.77 pesos on food alone. Additionally we have supported our students with internet costs, in some cases a computer to keep our students current. They are the future of Zihua. We plan to continue to help the people of Zihuatanejo, they are at the end of their rope, they have exhausted what little they had put away and are now literally begging us for their next delivery. We can only continue this with your help. We have reduced the size of the food hampers slightly as we found there are more smaller families than larger ones. The current size will still last with the basics for two weeks. Your donations are tax deductible in Canada, the USA and Mexico. We are grateful for the response from the people who love Zihua but we can't do this without you. We have neighbourhood captains who are in charge of getting the food to the most needy and we a have a couple of heroes who will deliver in emergencies as well as coordinating with other groups. The system works now we just need your help to maintain it. www.porlosninos.com

I wrote these instructions a while back for Canadians:
Here are instructions for Canadians:
1. Go to this link: https://porlosninos.com/portfolio/carols-rice-and-beans/
2. Click on the Amistad Canada logo (green A, red C)
3. Select "Donate Online with Canada Helps" - this takes to the CanadaHelps donation page.
4. Select "POR LOS NINOS DE ZIHUA" on the drop down and fill out your payment details. Note that you might need to create a Canada Helps account, which is not difficult.

Be warned though, there's a similarly named paralosninos.org that's an unrelated charity for a private school in the USA.
