We started off 2015 by inaugurating an indoor area for recreation, just on the side of our Nutrition Ward. The good thing about this addition is that besides providing the children with a space out of the cold, rain and snow during the harsh winter months, it has an educational component for art and learning skills. Since many of our children are in this ward for extended periods of time, we felt it would important to help them with these learning skills before returning to the difficult environment that awaits them once they return home.
It is our sincere pleasure to invite your pupils in Grades 1-8 to participate in our fourth annual Children's Art Contest. There are two groups of eligible entrants:
- Group 1, Grades 1-3
- Group 2, Grades 4-8
Cash prizes will be given to First, Second and Third Place for each group as well as a matching cash prize for the winners' schools. Please see the attached "Rules and Regulations Form" for all contest details.
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:

A typical day at Clinica Santa Teresita
Thank you to Antonio in Creel for sending some pictures of the recent Fiesta. These pictures show just how colorful the Tarahumara festivals are. The event is filled with great food, music, dancing and other activities lasting the entire day. We will be posting the official article from Creel as soon as we get it (TCHF of Orwegon).
Thank you to everyone who attended our 16th Annual Benefit this past Saturday. Once again hosted by the Riverside Golf & Country Club, the location and site preparation could not have been better. It seems in recent years we have had nearly perfect weather and this past Saturday was no exception. A warm and clear autumn day of 80 degrees welcomed our many friends and supporters to this beautiful location. Thank you to new manager Paul Blaze and his entire staff for setting up and servicing a terrific evening of delicous appetizers and cocktails followed by an outstanding dinner meal
As a quick follow up to the recent posting about the playground nearing completion, we have just received some more pictures of the 99% complete structure:
After a very hard winter and wet spring, the construction crew has nearly completed the installation of the new playground structure and compound at the Clinica Santa Teresita in Creel, Mexico.
Once again, we are overjoyed to welcome the delivery of the 200th quilt from Deloris Piller and Pat Swanson
of St. Philip Benizi Parish in Redland, OR. Deloris and Pat have been working on this labor of love for the past
