“We believe that moving children from streets to safe housing, improving current orphanage conditions and quality of life and focusing on education will ensure a promising future for Mexico’s orphaned and abandoned children”’ - Corazon de Vida Founder, Hilda Pacheco-Taylor
IRVINE, Calif. (PRWEB) December 17, 2018
Corazon de Vida was started by Hilda Pacheco-Taylor, who was an abandoned orphan herself as a child, in Ensenada, Baja Mexico. This non-profit organization has grown to include 10 orphanages throughout Baja, Mexico since 1994 with the help of hundreds of volunteers who work tirelessly to give these children a hope for their future!
Growing up in Ensenada, Mexico Hilda Pacheco-Taylor thought she had the perfect family. A mom, dad, three brothers and sisters and a modest home. All that changed when her father started drinking and became physically abusive. At just 8 years old, Hilda was left to care for her siblings while her mother struggled to support the family. It wasn’t long until Hilda and her siblings wound up in an orphanage where she would spend the next 8 years. Years later, Hilda went to visit the orphanage where she had spent much of her childhood. What she found broke her heart. The little orphanage that had helped her and her brothers and sisters in their time of need now needed help itself. Hilda started the non-profit Corazon de Vida, which translates to heart of life, to help “her” orphanage. Her mission - get children off the street and give them what they need to end the cycle of poverty.
