Volunteers from the Embassy joined others in the community to participate in a home-building project in Cuajimalpa with the charitable organization Mision Santa Fe and their partner Construye. In just a few days the volunteers built a new home for a mother and her three children.
Ambassador Wayne and DCM Dogu visited the worksite to support and encourage the volunteers. Many of the Embassy volunteers were motivated to participate in honor of Anne Smedinghoff, a fellow U.S. diplomat who was killed one year ago during a terrorist attack in Afghanistan while she was delivering books to a school as part of her work at the Embassy in Kabul. Anne’s giving spirit continues to inspire others to do good work in her name.
