MORE WAYS TO HELP
We want to build and stock a first aid unit and need your help. We are looking for shelves, medical tools, medicines for men, women, children plus other medical supplies. If you can donate funds to purchase any of the above or if you have access to donations of this type please reach out! Donations are 100% tax-deductible (depending, of course, on your personal financial situation). If you are a doctor or nurse interested in helping, we would love to hear from you!
SHELTER CONSTRUCTION FUND
Our current construction project is to build a large ramada (63'x30') to provide sheltered space for meals and kids' activities. Soon after, we will begin construction on an additional set of dormitories with bunk beds, a family area, and a medical unit. The migrants help by building bunk beds and tables. Donations to our construction fund will make a huge difference--the need for this additional space is urgent!
