Villa Infantil de Nuestra Senora de Guadalupe

September 28, 2011

Villa Infantil de Nuestra Señora de Guadalupe y San José, A.C.
A home for children
Villa Kids
The orphanage is located in the central highlands of Jalisco, Mexico on the south shore of Lake Chapala between San Pedro Tesistan and San Cristobal. The primary focus of Friends of Villa Infantil is to support the welfare of children by securing donations for education and emergency needs. The Villa receives NO funding from the state or federal government. ALL funding is from donations.
Urgent News
In early July, Villa Infantil had its first comprehensive state inspection. The state presented Madre Maria with a list of items that must be met if the Villa is to operate after November 28, 2011. While many of the items were simple to address and have already been accomplished, some require substantial amounts of funding. To address this issue. We have put together a fact sheet which you can download here.
This is an emergency situation and we need your help!
Cash and Check Donations can be made by contacting Friends of Villa Infantil at or through Credit Card at Foundation for Lake Chapala Charities by using their PayPal account. You will be taken to PayPal Mexico but the first box in the form allows you to change your country to Estados Unidos (United States) or Canada which you may need to do to get the proper name and address fields.
You may print out a receipt when your transaction is complete. Please be sure to specify when donating either way that your donation is for Regulations Compliance
