As recently as 2009, Juárez has been known as the most violent city in the world that was not a war zone. This has been largely due to the ongoing drug wars between competing cartels. Juárez is located just across the border from El Paso on the Rio Grande. In an area 20 km outside Juárez, Project Hope Worldwide has established a program for orphans amongst the poor and displaced people living in what is called “Colonias.” This program insures that children have access to a safe home, food/clothes, education, medical care and spiritual/character mentorship.
