The Foundation of Wings of Angels
Wings of Angels Foundation is a rescue mission concerned for the tens of thousands of poor located in Mexico immediately across from the US border town of Douglas in southeast Arizona and in nothern Sonora. These poor have come hundreds of miles from the Mexican interior in a last effort to seek food, medical care and shelter for their families who typically include a large number of children. Governmental social services and charitable groups are very limited in Sonora, and, to a great extent, overwhelmed by the flood of humanity.
Since 2000, the Wings of Angels monthly Crisis Intervention Clinic has held 84 consecutive clinics (6000 patient visits) in Mexico with volunteer medical doctors and nurses who provide medical and dental treatment, administer care and deliver medications, arrange surgeries, provide glasses, prosthetics and orthotics, provide family counseling and mentoring, formulated milk, diapers, physical therapy and equipment, wheelchairs, blankets, fresh produce from the Wings of Angels teaching garden, support for education, and winterized shelters.
So many resources, materials and skills are available to Wings of Angels from the US, that accomplishing all these important services is possible.
