Fire Hits Friends of the Orphans Office 

Videos, books, photographs and awards chronicling the history of Nuestros Pequeños Hermanos (NPH) were destroyed Saturday, October 11, 2003, due to a fire at the Friends of the Orphans Arizona (FOTO-AZ) Office, 424 East Southern Avenue, Tempe.

FOTO-AZ has been supporting over 2,800 orphaned and abandoned children in seven homes throughout Mexico, Central America, and the Caribbean for 38 years.

Fr. William B. Wasson, a native of Arizona, founded NPH in 1954 and celebrated his 80th birthday at a fiesta Friday evening attended by friends, donors and godparents. The celebration included performances by 20 musicians and dancers from NPH in Mexico, together with the Country Director, Fr. Phillip Cleary.

Because of the fire, we did not have E-mail service until October 14, 2003. If you sent a message to us between October 10 - 14 and do not hear from us within a week, please re-send your message.
