Sorry they disappointed you by not looking gaunt and pathetic.

REALLY?!

Who are you to judge? Maybe those are the only clothes they have. Maybe they ran out of food yesterday and that will be their last meal. I just don't get people.

They look dirty to you?  That is the color of their skin, that doesn't wash off.  Their cloths look new?  The boy is literally wearing ripped up pants.  Don't worry, as they start to look more like holocaust victims, I'm sure we will get more photo images of them in the future.  Maybe then people will see how desperate many people truly are in this area due to poverty and the lockdowns.

Sorry, I first saw the pictures on my small smart phone, now seeing them up closer on a real computer screen, I realize that the kids do look slightly grimy, typical of their age though.  But everything else I said I stand by.  They are obviously in need and still deserve our sympathy and help.

Forget all this bitching people and give money to feed the people!!!!!   It doesn't matter what they look like folks are hungry and I know this for a fact not guessing. Its in our own self interests and the right thing to do.

Please

 People who make insensitive and ignorant statements should be called out. We don’t do it instead of donating to the cause but in addition to.

Some representatives of the foodbank were at the organic market on Tuesday accepting donations and we donated, grateful for their wonderful work. We have adopted a few different families here.....or maybe I should say they adopted us because they sure are wonderful to us.....and we help them with food, cash when necessary and we pay for one families oldest daughters accounting school classes and books. We are not wealthy and basically live off of our SSI and a small pension but compared to the average Mexican person here we are very well off. Those of us on fixed incomes here have not been seriously affected financially with the hardships of Covid-19 but in the states prices on nearly everything have gone up substantially as I witnessed spending 4 1/2 months in Oregon recently. This is a very good opportunity to help our Mexican neighbors if we can and they sure could use it now💓
