Who We Have Helped
The Rosario Zepeda Foundation continues Rosario’s legacy of helping those in need. Since it’s inception in 2010, the foundation has been making a difference where it can.
In the rural villages of Mexico, there are not many opportunities for women. The expectation is that they take care of their home and family. There are not many jobs for women and the jobs available are generally reserved for men. If the man of house is unable to provide, the women suffer. Rosario Zepeda often gave all she had to help the poor women of her village, El Salitre, Mexico, survive. Her legacy continues: More than 26 families depend on food and clothing donations provided by the Rosario Zepeda Foundation.
Many of the women are older and have been widowed. Founder Betty Acosta personally travels to the village to distribute charitable donations to help these poor women. Just $50 per month makes such a huge difference in these families lives.
