10News Looks Into Orphanage Abuse Allegations

December 8th, 2007 by Miracle Ranch

10News investigators have uncovered allegations of rape, torture and possible trafficking of children at an orphanage.

Also, 10News investigators revealed the orphanage’s connection to a ministry that raises millions of dollars for orphans.

10News got a hold of this story because of a little girl’s cry for help. The girl said a man who was supposed to be taking care of her molested her.

Missing Orphans Possibly Involved In Sex Trafficking

The Oasis orphanage is in the high desert between Ensenada and San Felipe, but the story took 10News investigators to a side of Tijuana, Mexico most never get to see.

Prostitutes walk the city streets, with some as young as 8 years old.

“About $5,000 minimum price. That’s the going rate to buy a child who can be turned into a prostitute,” said Marissa Ugarte of the Bilateral Safety Corridor Coalition.

Where do many of these kids come from?

Ugarte said orphanages in Mexico and other parts of the world have become feeding grounds for the sexual trafficking industry.

    I am a member of the MRO Foundation Board of Directors, I live in Walnut Creek, CA (north of San Francisco, and have been involved in the investigation of the abuses at the Ranch from the first time we heard of the allegations. There has been sufficient evidence presented to convince me that the abuses happened, and that the Mexican judicial system should be doing more than they have done. At the very least, Tony & Edna should have removed themselves voluntarily from any position of authority at the Ranch until the system makes a conclusive ruling on the charges. This has not happened and we, the Board, are powerless to make it happen. So we will just have to wait until the justice system prevails, which I believe it will.
    In the meantime, my heart goes out to all the victims over the years who have had the courage and conviction to come forward and present their testimony. It have been incredibly difficult and sad to relive those horrible moments in their young lives. To you, I offer my heartfelt thanks, and I know you will be vindicated by the system and you will be able to restart your lives with a new vision.
    Thank you all, and God Bless you all.

    Don Meek
