New project supports TCHF Endowment Fund

John in the ELF

John Brockamp, President of TCHF of Oregon has embarked on a new enterprise to support the TCHF Endowment Fund.  He recently purchased an ELF solar and pedal powered vehicle.  He is now selling the amazing trike, and donating the proceeds to the Endowment Fund.  He recently rode the ELF in the Portland Bridge Pedal, and is planning on making appearances at other events in the Portland area to promote the vehicle and TCHF.    For more information, visit the new website at:


Preserving a heritage, Ensuring a future

Imagine lives so impoverished that most of the community's children die before reaching the age of five. The children are part of a tribe of 60,000 Tarahumara Indians, who live in caves and primitive huts, with unsafe drinking water, parasites, and devastating malnutrition. Picture all this in an area of unsurpassed scenic beauty, with mountains and canyons and a rich cultural heritage - just hours from El Paso, Texas. This is the situation that Father Verplancken found when he came to Creel, Mexico in the early 1960's.
