Izabelle Nizincourt

Our three Christmas celebrations for the disadvantaged in México City put us in contact with many “invisible” people, those whom most of society don’t see or hear about. “Patricino un Libro” (Sponsor a Book) volunteers are so thankful that we were able to show these desperately poor people some recognition, encouragement and love during the Christmas season.

“I asked my mommy for a doll for Christmas, but she couldn’t get one! Thanks for the pretty doll!”

These were just a few of the reactions that we received during Christmas and Kings day as our team of volunteers distributed toys and Activated Ministries sponsored books to the children and parents at the AMANC Hostel, a facility for low-income families coming from the provinces to Mexico City for cancer treatment.
