Thank you again to Arianne for her visit and service to the Clinica this past summer. She did a great job of shooting video footage for the TCHF of Oregon Benefit Fund-An-Item video and even took the initiative to make a couple of very cute and touching videos of the many children that she met and interacted with during her visit. Thank you from the TCHF of Oregon:

This short video was produced for the TCHF Oregon 16th annual fundraiser and had it's premier on Oct. 4th 2014. Enjoy!
Hello, my name is Isaac Alles. I recently put on a fundraiser with a couple of my friends to raise money for the Tarahumara Children's Hospital. We made tissue paper flowers which we sold in order to raise funds. You wrote and asked me to send a photo of our project. Here are a couple of pictures of us selling the flowers at our school, and one picture of the poster we made. Two of the photos were taken with an old cellphone, so their quality is not the best. My two friends' names are Aimee Bataglia and Meaghan Young.
Donald John McCullough, a pioneer member of the Oregon TCHF board, died July 8, 2010, of a heart attack while fishing on the Oregon coast. He is survived by his wife, Lana, also a member of the board, and two children Tammy and Valerie. Don’s granddaughter, Corrina, recently spent a short time as a volunteer at the Santa Teresita clinic in Creel.

Here are three video documentaries produced by Andre Hediger in 2012. They show an intimate portrait of what life is like for the Tarahumara in the remote canyons of Barranca del Cobre. (Copper Canyon to us)

DURANGO, Mexico (AP) — The sun-baked northern states of Mexico are suffering under the worst drought since the government began recording rainfall 70 years ago. Crops of corn, beans and oats are withering in the fields. About 1.7 million cattle have died of starvation and thirst.
