The backpacks have a needed hygiene kit, new socks, and a toy. Our heart is to express love to these children in a tangible way, not only through the care they receive at the clinic, but also through a backpack!
Every child that comes through a Mission Flight clinic receives a backpack.
You can sponsor on a one-time basis or monthly basis.
If you sponsor monthly, your impact will be ongoing!

Every backpack that we pack in the U.S. and take to an impoverished area actually hurts their struggling economy in the long run. Alternatively, every backpack that you sponsor enables us to purchase supplies in the local town, having a long-term economic boost to their economy. Additionally, it costs us roughly $20 to bring each backpack, with supplies, from the U.S. into Mexico.
With that said, it is indeed very meaningful (for both kids and adults) to purchase supplies and backpacks and donate them. It is a very tangible way to help and serve those in need. If you have a strong preference for this option, we are happy to accommodate.
Here's the list of things to pack:
- Basic School Supplies Pens, Pencils, Crayons, Solar Calculator, Lined Paper, Eraser, etc- Hygiene Kit Toothbrush, Toothpaste, Dental Floss, Comb, Shampoo, Soap- 2 New Pairs of Socks (must be new)- Small Toy or Stuffed Animal- A Letter From You to the Child - For BOYS - attach a blue piece of yarn. For GIRLS - attach a pink piece of yarn- Pray for the child and family who will be receiving it
- $20 check inside each backpack for the cost of getting it to the site and the import tax. Checks payable to "Mission Flight" memo "backpack" or online at
