Ayuda Al Niño Boliviano into Action

5 year old Burn Victim in 2005, Tery at his bedside
In 1969 Rick and Tery Jackson co-founded Ayuda Al Niño Boliviano with the help of Lady Bird Johnson (first lady of the United States) and Mrs. Preston Smith (first lady of Texas).
Ayuda is a IRS Code 501.c.3 public charity that helps orphaned children as well as the poorest of the poor children in Bolivia.
Thousands of children all over Bolivia have received help from Ayuda.
Tery Jackson is the President of Ayuda. Trey has personally visited, inspected, and handed over the supplies requested by the orphanages.
Our current project is to get the abandoned children off of the streets of Santa Cruz. There are very few resources and next to no government support for these children. Most of these children are in a life of drugs, crime and abuse. They in turn abuse and rob others in the city. We need to get these kids off of the street into places that are safe and healthful. They need housing, food, supervision, education, and vocational training. Most of all they need our love.
Donations to Ayuda Al Niño Bolivian are tax deductible. 100% of your money is spent on the children, we have no overhead, no salaries, and no travel expenses.
