The wildfires that ranged from Tijuana to Ensenada have left 4 people dead completely destroyed over 200 homes with partial damage to as many as 500 homes. Just in Santa Anita, next to La Mision 29 of the 200 homes were completely destroyed. Over 1600 people have been displaced temporarily, some permanently. Many farms, ranches, and businesses have been destroyed leaving hundreds without any source of income, some also without a home.
In the Santa Anita, Santa Rosa, El Salco and La Mision areas most residences that were destroyed or damaged have no insurance to help cover the loss. The Government fire insurance program requires that property taxes are paid currently and then only provide a maximum of 5000.00 dollars. Many of our neighbors have no way of recovering without our help.
The La Mision Children’s Fund requests donations of building materials, food for our food bank in La Mision, blankets and most of all donations of cash. Any amount. Please.
