Meet Abraham Mendoza Osuna
Abraham was the first student sponsored by Los Amigos de los Niños. In 1996, his mother approached a few Los Amigos members asking for help for her son to go secundaria (middle school). Nine years later, Abraham graduated from university with a degree in architecture. Now he is a supervisor, monitoring the activities of mining operations at the Boleo Mine in Santa Rosalía. As part of his job, he lives at the mine when he is on duty; otherwise, he lives with his mother and younger sister in Nuevo Mulegé. He was married and has a twelve-year-old daughter who lives with her mother in Cabo. He is an intelligent young man who is very thankful for the help he has been given.
[The following is an excerpt from a translation in a short video that was recorded.]
“Thanks to God mainly, but with your help, I finished the course of studies. Now it is like a seed that was watered little by little, the tree was growing and now we have this tree and even its fruits. I thank you very much and I greet you with all my heart.”
