A very sad story. The one thing that hurts to read is the people, especially children, not having enough to eat. It shouldn't matter what race, religion or color you are, no one should go hungry. Glad to see Diaz Farms accepting the food drop off, and hope locals will contribute, I know I will be.

By the way, I tried to click on www.palomasoutreach.org . in the article but there was an error. Don't know if it's at my end or trouble with their website, but couldn't make it work.

Thank you, Deming Headlight for publishing, however late, this retrospective of last year's work.
Thank everyone who helped us work in 2010 on behalf of the hunger crisis in Palomas!
The Palomas Outreach website is running months behind, as the sheer physical work has kept us away from the computer.

More recent information can be obtained by contacting Victoria Tester inside the U.S. at

P and T's legacy lives on. Drug cartels putting on finishing touches. These peasants haven't just been starved to death, they've been racketeered into a sorrowfull situation.

It's not you, that server is probably offline. The name doesn't resolve, so it's probably more than that. Very unfortunate timing....

It must be a very difficult life for a lot of people right now in Palomas, especially if you have children. Living in fear, some with not a lot to eat and no way out of a bad situation.

I just dropped off several boxes of non perishable food at Diaz Farm this afternoon and really hope they get a good response from our community for a bad situation they're in right now. It's good Esperanza and her helpers are there for these people and hope things improve at some point for all.

I've been trying to reach Victoria for about a month. She has not returned my phone calls or emails.Does anyone have information about what is happening with the organization? I have a garage full of food that was collected by elementary school children for the people of Palomas and I haven't been able to deliver it to Victoria in Columbus. If anyone can give me some information, I would really appreciate it. Thanks from Santiago in El Paso, Texas.

I couldn't care less about what goes on south of the border. Screw every one of you panty waisted liberals !!! You're a brood of MFing Communists. You had better be working to solve the problems right here in the United States before you go across the border trying to play do-gooder in Mexico.

There is a community member here in Phoenix, Arizona who will b going to visit familia in Ascencion, Chihuahua- we are gathering as many blankets & supplies for this awfully cold winter-(2 people recently froze there)- do u know of any grupos working with Ascencion? As i understand it- Palomas is not far from there- Also- there is wood available for free to the community but most have no way to retreive it from mountains- If there was a grupo willing to assist with fuel, friend could help out with that - he has diesel heavy duty pickup-

Well, you'd have to count me in with them, Bub. I worry about the down-trodden in the 3rd world all the time. Unlike politicians who wrest earnings out of your paycheck, followers of this thread fund this concern with just spare goods or change.
