Working with Niños Incapacitados 

We are most grateful to Niños Incapacitados for helping a number of children from the San Pedro Itzicán area into their program.  This is such a help to these families. (Niños Incapacitados help families with children who are chronically or severely sick, and reimburse medical expenses, tests, medications and transport to get them to the Hospital Civil or other services in Guadalajara). 

On their first visit, Anita Torres, drives the families to the Niños Clinic in Chapala and back, and explains the process they have to follow in order to get medical reimbursements.  It's the most helpful way for the families to get there and understand the process but takes up Anita's time and gas money for the truck too. 


During covid we were not able to do this, but now (May 2024) Anita has to bring the mothers from time to time, to check in with Niños Incapacitados.  It's not easy to get there by bus, and sometimes the bus driver won't allow the child on the bus. So it's all challenging. Niños Incapacitados accepts children up to the age of 17.  So some families cannot get help because of the age of their child.

A number of the children that Niños Incapacitados has helped in the San Pedro area, have died.  At least three children are currently being treated for renal problems.
