Hombre Nuevo distributed food, clothing and toys to the poor.
January 15th Hombre Nuevo, a Spanish-language mass media apostolate with headquarters in Los Angeles, California, organized a special mission of charity by gathering food, clothing, toys and other supplies and taking them personally to the poorest areas of Tijuana, Mexico. Legionary of Christ Father Salvador Fernandez, LC, directed the effort.

This marks the tenth consecutive year Hombre Nuevo organized the project entitled Pequeño Jesús (Little Jesus) by inviting its radio listeners to imitate the three kings who brought Jesus gifts at the Epiphany.

The generosity and response this year was very encouraging as the number of participants doubled from last year. It was quite a sight: 191 cars, trucks and vans lined up to make the trip from LA to Tijuana with 7,500 toys and over 600 boxes of supplies and clothing for the poor in twenty different villages.

The recipients were moved by the generosity and charity
