ON-THE GROUND RELIEF EFFORTS IN TIJUANA
As you know there is a humanitarian crisis at our southern border, with thousands of asylum-seekers awaiting process in Tijuana. For the past six months we have delivered supplies to refugee shelters in Tijuana on a near-daily basis. We have hand-delivered over 1500 tents and sleeping bags. We have brought hundreds of truckloads of supplies, including tens of thousands of diapers, wipes, toiletries, over-the-counter medication, formula and other basic necessities. We have also supplied our friends at World Central Kitchen with groceries and Costco Cards to assist them in their efforts feeding thousands of refugees every day. Our CEO Mark Lane even brought Christmas to Las Caritas shelter, arriving in full costume with hundreds of beautifully wrapped presents for the refugee children.
With the help of Miles 4 Migrants, and our generous supporters, we have been able to send families by bus, plane and train to be reunited with their families. We believe that families belong together. When we meet asylum-seekers who have been separated from their families in ICE or CBP detention centers we stop at nothing to help them.
BUILDING A ROOF, BATHROOM AND SHOWER AT LAS CARITAS SHELTER IN TIJUANA
We are currently in the process of building a new bathroom, shower and outdoor roof enclosure for the 150 asylum-seeking women and children staying at Las Caritas Shelter in Tijuana, Mexico.
These asylum-seekers are waiting to be processed, and due to new immigration policies, they likely have a long wait ahead of them. This new roof will create livable space, and a safe, shady area for the children to play. The new bathroom and shower are desperately needed, and will greatly improve the quality of life for these families.
