STRATEGIC ALLIANCE MINISTIRES
On the outskirts of cities and villages in Mexico along the border with the United States live colonies of families struggling for items that we take for granted every day. Their homes consist of scrap wood, pallets, old bed springs and plastic that they salvage from nearby garbage dumps. There are no paved streets. Many areas have no water or electricity. Their diet consists of beans, rice, corn tortillas and occasionally the meat of a chicken which was raised in their yard. For them life is difficult.
To provide for their families, many rummage through the dump for items to sell, to wear and sometimes to eat. Some drive small trucks through the city picking up garbage to support their family. Others work as laborers in local factories. A typical wage is $20 to $40 per week. A factory wage is $60 to $80 per week. Poverty prevails. There is hope.
At Strategic Alliance, we have learned to look for and identify needs. Together we can fill them with genuine love. Together we can fill them with genuine love. For 33+ years we have been taking teams from all over the United States to build Homes For The Homeless for the families who live in the Colonia.
