Misión México provides a loving, secure home for around 45 children who have been abused, neglected, orphaned or abandoned, and from backgrounds of extreme poverty. Since it was established in 2001, by Australian couple Pam and Alan Skuse, Misión México has helped transform the lives of more than 250 children and given them a much deserved second chance at life.
The refuge resembles a family home rather than an institution, where the children feel loved and secure. The children attend school, something most of them had not experienced before. The children are also learning to swim and surf and are the only surfers in Tapachula! Surfing is a previously unknown activity in that part of the world, yet it has become a uniquely transforming sporting activity for these children.
