Tijuana dumps

Sister Teresa is a nun who works at a preschool and women-run community center in a recently closed municipal dump in Tijuana.  She just got back from my hometown of Durango, Colo. where she spoke to a packed room about her life’s work and how people can get involved.

When I talked to Sister T for a story I did about the Tijuana landfills, one of the most memorable things I took with me was her advice to the many ministry groups who pay the dumps annual visits:  Give money, give your personal time, but DO NOT bring bags filled with old clothes, toys and candy.  The kids can find that crap in the dumps.
