Leadec Mexico team bring presents to orphanage for children with HIV
The incredible Leadec team in Mexico has provided their services for those who need it most. Not with engineering and cleaning but by bringing presents, cakes and playing games with children at an orphanage who have been diagnosed with HIV.
The Eunime Orphanage in Tijuana has been helping children with the terrible illness since 2006 and remains the only site in the country to provide this valuable service. There are 27 children at the orphanage, with the youngest being 5 months old and the oldest being 20 years old. The orphanage receives a lot of support from the government who provide the medicine, costing approximately 30,000 pesos per month per child.
Our colleagues at the nearby Leadec site in Tecate picked Children’s Day, April 30 in Mexico, as the perfect time to surprise the kids at the orphanage. The trio, representing everyone from Leadec in Tecate, rolled in with presents for the children, from footballs to board games, as well as three cakes for them to enjoy. The team even stuck around to play baseball together while getting a tour around the facility.
It was a fantastic opportunity for the team – with each colleague saying being able to help the children was a massively rewarding experience. Leadec is still in touch with the Eunime Orphanage today, as potentially we could help them in other ways in the future.
