Angels for mexico

We're a non-profit charity that was started in Calgary in 2007. Our goal is to improve the lives and safety of families in Mexico

We do this through our support of emergency service departments in Mexico by sending surplus gear and equipment and supplying much needed training. We are very grateful to all of the fire departments and fire/safety manufacturers who donate the essential gear and equipment.

What We Do Best

Another program that we have is the building of recycled tire
playgrounds in impoverished villages. This allows for a safe and a fun place for Mexican families to enjoy time together.

The changes that we have seen through both of these programs has been remarkable. It has shown us that it takes very little to affect change in these areas. The gratitude for our efforts has been overwhelming and very humbling

We invite you to have a look through our website and contact us if you would like more information, want to sponsor a Mexican Firefighter to come here for training, join us for a playground build or want to get involved in some other way. It has been an amazing journey thus far and we are excited to see where it takes us next.

AFM Container and Training Bring Help To 200 Bomberos

Angels for Mexico was thrilled to be able to bring a 40 foot container to the port of Manzanillo to support the municipalities of Compestela, Guayabitos, Puerto Vallarta, Mascota, Talpa and Bahai de Banderas in March 2022. The gear and equipment in this shipment gave support to over 200 firefighters. Some of these areas had little to nothing prior to sharing in this container.

A couple of weeks later, we had a team of Firefighters from Canada come down to give these Bomberos a week of training. Some of these firefighters had never even held a fire hose before this. But if your area has no fire truck, this is not that surprising. It was amazing to watch the bond that was created between our Canadian team and their Mexican Brothers. And the gratitude that was expressed was genuine and deep…

The Amazing Angels for Mexico Doing Amazing Work

PUERTA VALLARTA BOMBEROS HELP THEIR BROTHERS IN COMPESTELA

” If you ever wondered, if there truly is a Brotherhood between firefighters, I can tell you that I have been very fortunate to be able to witness this first hand on many occasions. In the past, it has typically been when Canadian firefighters, who volunteer with Angels For Mexico, have brought down gear/equipment or done a little training.”

Meet Our Board members

We are deeply devoted to supporting our courageous “bomberos” and providing them with the necessary assistance and equipment to effectively serve communities and municipalities. The invaluable contributions of our dedicated board members play a pivotal role in achieving this mission. Their commitment is instrumental in highlighting the significance of our work, and it is our shared passion that propels this foundation forward.

"My absolute favorite part of the builds is seeing an empty unused space on that first day, and then being able to see an incredible community space for kids to play, and parents to see the pure happiness on their children's faces at the end of the trip."
