Women and children asylum seekers are in danger on the MX side of the US border and we need your help to make a difference.
Our approach at Misión de Caridad is unique. We are looking at long term, sustainable solutions that are life changing for these families. Our programs will enable refugees to become self-sufficient. With your help we will provide:
- Short term housing with training and goals to develop independence
- Job and life skills training and support so families can work
- Wellness coaching and spiritual/emotional health support
- Educational opportunities for children and adults
We need your help to purchase a property and build a facility to help these refugees. Any amount that you give will go toward helping refugees that are stuck in Mexico.
A bit of background:
Data from TRAC at Syracuse University indicated that as of September, 2019, 47,000 non-Mexican asylum seekers have been returned to Mexico (through Migrant Protection Protocols -MPP) to wait for their asylum cases to be determined.
The data also shows that of the cases that have been processed, only 0.1% of all completed cases resulted in asylum being granted. With those odds, we can be pretty confident that a majority of those seeking asylum from some of the most dangerous places in the world (in Central America) will not have a positive outcome.
I, Jean (co-founder of Mision de Caridad), have personally met many of those waiting and the vast majority are women and children that are not only homeless and without resources, but are also at risk of being re-victimized, as there is no formal government process from either country (US or Mexico) to care for them. As a result, while they are waiting, women and their children are at risk and vulnerable to sex trafficking, sexual assault, kidnapping and many other horrible crimes against them.
This is a humanitarian crisis and Mision de Caridad is doing something about it, but we need your help.
