Many Canadians and Americans visit Puerto Vallarta, especially during the winter months. Larry Kehler has been working with the children of Puerto Vallarta, Mexico since 2002. He started with the Refugio Infentile Orphanage, raising money  for food and daily essentials.  These fund raising efforts helped the Orphanage to build a new and better place for the homeless children to live and call home.  Weekly shopping trips to Sam’s Club ensured they were well fed during the winter months.
