Paper Houses Across the Border


Herbie is a year and half old and ready for his first surgery. For Christmas:  bus tickets and an operation


So happy to receive my wheelchair, but I want an operation that will allow me to walk, run, and play.


Help this little Down syndrome angel receive her exam and medication for her heart condition.

Fernando is excited to have a wheelchair, and loves moving about. Asked what he wants for Christmas, he said that he wants to walk, run, and play. He wants to give his wheelchair to another child because he will not need it.
Doctors at the public hospital already explained to Fernando's mother that nothing could be done beaus his mobility problems are more than his twisted feet.
We sent Fernando to a private hospital and were assured that his feet can be corrected with surgery and that he will walk and play like other children. Our nearly 20 years of experience taught us to always have children examined at private hospitals because they are often misdiagnosed at the public hospitals serving the poor. Doctors seem to believe that since a poor family cannot afford solutions that are available, they simply tell families that nothing can be done.
Our next step is to raise $2800 to change this little guy's life!

Why Paper Houses Across the Border?

We work one-to-one with the poor. Supporting shelters, saving and changing lives, feeding the hungry, improving education is all part of what we do.

Children that were blind can now see. Children who were deaf can hear. We’ve made chemotherapy a reality for needy children.

The elderly and forgotten are taken off the streets and cared for in shelters that we support. We are Paper Houses Across the Border, and you can be a part of us!

Children are now safe and loved in shelters that we support.

Cafeterias, after-school programs, free school meals are all part of what we do.

Every dollar you send reaches the people in need. We know these families, these children, these teachers, and these shelters. We walk the streets. We visit families in their homes. We see doctors, teachers, and the people managing and living in these shelters.      We use our vehicles, our own computers, and office supplies are donated by specific sponsors.

Thousands of school children receive free meals. We make life saving and life changing medical help a reality. Blind children can now see. Deaf children can now hear. We visit the shelter and schools that we help. We do so without notice.
