Muna Ezumah said, “As being a part of the second group to go on the boarder trip to Tijuana, I am both fortunate and grateful to experience such a rewarding trip partaking in the monthly care for 200 of the homeless men in Mexico.
One question that I raised was how they were able to house all the men every night. I was told and saw for myself that there are about 200 beds, with men still rotating in and out of the facility but as of now La Roca said they are still in need of supplies besides beds and bedding but shower equipment as well as sandals and socks the men need for shower use and just everyday use.
I saw the generosity of one 70 year old woman who came in every day and cooks for the men, without any compensation for her own benefit. Such a blessing for all the men at La Roca.
There was a lot of difficulty because the majority of us were not Spanish speakers but we managed to pick up as fast as we could and the men were so sweet and understanding that things have been worse but its better to look up everyday than continuing to look down. I hope to return again because this was an amazing experience.”
