With a population of 400,000, Mazatlan is situated on the west side of Mexico and is considered a key tourist destination. As is the case with most important destinations around the world, what is visible to a tourist only represents a small fraction of the reality of that particular community. Behind the sprawling resorts and the beautiful historic buildings exists a tremendous need for orphan care.
There are nine children’s homes registered with the Children’s Services Department in Mazatlan. Each home was birthed out of a desire to serve the orphan child, but the directors face continual obstacles. The homes have little capacity to receive new children due to the limited staffing and scarce financial resources. Since 2011, when Back2Back was first introduced to the needs in Mazatlan, we have felt a call from God to serve orphaned children in this region. Our desire is to be a part of the story that God is writing in the lives of orphaned children in Mazatlan.
