Welcome to our new website for the:
Alas de Dios - Chiapas: Orphanage
"Bienvenidos A Ocosingo"
"Welcome to Ocosingo"
This website is all about the orphanage "Alas de Dios" - "Wings of God", located in the Mexican state of Chiapas - the Southernmost state. Chiapas borders Guatemala to the East, Pacific Ocean on the South-West, Oaxaca and Veracruz to the West, and Tabasco on the North. A popular tourist destination is the city of San Cristobal de Las Casas. The largest city is Tuxtla-Gutierrez, the capital. There are a very few other large cities, but many native villages. The state is subtropical, mountainous with beautiful scenery. And there are stunning state parks to visit: Palenque (Mayan ruins); Cascades Agua Azul - Blue Water Cascades - to name two. The orphanage facility itself is located in the country about 10 miles south of the city of Ocosingo - about 100 miles from Tuxtula. (Our header photo was taken from the facility's back yard.)
