Providing a Healing Environment for Refugee Children Gente Unida

Funds raised

Our vision was to create a healing environment for refugee children in Mexico. This project was a collaboration with Gente Unida, a Human Rights Border Coalition. We were able to provide three refugee shelters resources to make infrastructural changes. One shelter constructed a greenhouse, planted fruit trees, and purchased twenty egg-laying chickens. This not only contributed to the food supply of the shelter, but also brought joy. Another shelter was able to build a room dedicated to meditation and education. They were also able to get a computer, which helps refugees find employment. A sink purchased for the quarantine room increased sanitation and health. Fifteen bunkbeds built to fit the limited space, provided more places for more people to rest. And lastly, a tremendous influx of refugees got the food and medicine that they needed.
