Second Campus

Why We Do What We Do:

Desperate to provide for their families and believing they have nowhere to turn, many mothers in Mexico abandon their children in orphanages or leave them home alone all day while they work. Open Arms provides a Christ-filled atmosphere for even the least of these, God’s beloved children. We currently have 60 children enrolled in our no-cost daycare, where we focus on education and teaching the Word of God. We keep these children off the streets and out of orphanages. Open Arms also serves over 100 youth in our teen center, has an actively growing church, and periodically opens a free medical and dental clinic to members of the community. You too can help us in our mission to keep families together and prevent childhood abandonment!

The Facts:

  • 10 million children are orphaned in Mexico.
  • 4 out of 5 children in orphanages have at least one parent who is too poor to provide for their child(ren).
  • The two biggest complaints made by mothers are that their children often go hungry and that there is a lack of available childcare.
  • Marginalized by society, poor children fear being abandoned.

Our Solution:

We here at Open Arms are dedicated to keeping families together and preventing childhood abandonment.

We are excited to announce that we will be starting a second campus in Camalu, Mexico!  The Camalu Project is our fundraising campaign for this expansion of Open Arms. We are trying to raise 100k in 100 days to secure the land and begin building Phase 1 of the daycare facility.

God has moved in our hearts with concern for the children of Camlu, an area about four hours south of the border where many children are left vulnerable during the day while their parents work in the agricultural fields. We believe that FAITH makes MIRACLES! We know that God can work miracles in Camlu through Open Arms.

On the first day of our campaign, we were blessed with $26,000! God is so good. Only $74,000 to go! We just need:

  • 100 people to give $740 each or
  • 200 people to give $370 each or
  • 300 people to give $246 each

Whatever amount God has placed on your heart to give we will greatly appreciate! Thank you for your concern for the children of Mexico. We know God will bless you hundredfold for your generosity – we have seen it!

Believe, hope, and pray with us, and GIVE to the children of Camalu. We can’t do this without you! Help us raise 100k in 100 days.
