UPDATE: Due to the dire situations in which migrants find themselves and their families, we are continuing this fundraising campaign beyond the original goal so that our friends at Seguimos Adelante, who are transporting food and supplies over the border will be able to continue their vital work.
The need for food among migrants in Ciudad Juarez, Mexico has not abated. Migrant asylum-seekers continue to be crowded into ill-equipped shelters and in addition to needing food, they are running low on essential items like diapers, baby formula and toilet paper.
Seguimos Adelante is providing these as well as other hard-to-find supplies such as cleaning products, hand sanitizers, thermometers and multivitamins.
Please donate to keep the Seguimos Adelante van filled with Food for the Border! Make it monthly if you can.
Seguimos Adelante travels every day from El Paso, Texas to Ciudad Juárez, Mexico bringing healthy food, medical supplies, and sanitizing products to asylum-seekers and their families.
They are feeding 1,000 people per day!
And they need our support!
Friends of Seguimos Adelante came together to help raise funds for this critical work.
Your previous generous contribution made it possible to purchase the van that goes daily from El Paso to Ciudad Juárez with food for migrants forced to remain in Mexico by the Trump Administration's cruel policies.
Your generous contribution now will make it possible to continue filling the van every day with food and supplies for a growing number of asylum-seekers who desperately need food.
The crisis at the border has been exacerbated by COVID-19 which has overwhelmed the already-stretched support systems. People are living in crowded shelters and shanties or on the streets. They have no access to decent food or medical supplies.
As Friends of Seguimos Adelante, we want to make sure that this all- volunteer organization has a steady source of funds to purchase Food for the Border.
