Sky Cross, Inc has aided those in need on the Mexico/US Border since 1995. We have provided tens of thousands, if not hundreds of thousands of families, much needed food so that they did not go hungry.
Today, with illnesses running rampant, we are asking for help to provide gloves, masks, sanitzer, and disinfectant to those same people. The virus is out of control in some areas since many families are not working and income is almost non-existent.
Please donate to give these people a fighting chance.
Below is an excerpt from one of the locations we support in Guaymas, Mexico. Your donation will go to help support missionaries on the front lines helping the poor in along the Mexico/US Border.
"The illness situation in Guaymas is becoming desperate. As after the typhoon in 2015, the Casa Franciscana Mission has become a hub for food and other necessities such as medicines. Staff is distributing "to go" bags now made up primarily of canned sardines, crackers and a bottle of water. Some of the students from private schools and their families are donating sandwiches and a North American with a winter home in San Carlos donated 1,000 individual containers of fruit juice as she left for Canada.
The bags are all distributed at our main dining room. So more people are coming from the hills since we have closed the other dining rooms to protect our staff and the people they serve. We are also distributing bagged beans and other staples.
The maquiladoras (factories) are shut down. Large numbers of people are unemployed and also coming to our food lines. Tomorrow is the day for the monthly dispensas which are the food boxes that would normally be distributed to the elderly and disabled by our social workers. However, those who usually receive the boxes are asked to send a representative to the main dining room. Medicines will be distributed in a separate building. The Mission had enough beans, etc. to prepare 70 extra boxes but many more people are expected.
The police patrols are enforcing shut downs and "healthy distancing". The Mission is trying to comply and using two streets and an alley for lines. People start lining up at 6:30 a.m. The plan tomorrow, is to begin handing out "tickets" and asking the people to come back when the dining room opens and they will be guaranteed a bag. After the tickets are gone they will sadly tell people to leave. Not sure how that will work or where these people will go. It breaks our hearts."
