Right now, families are fleeing their home countries in urgent need of safe refuge, food and emergency support.
Extremely vulnerable families in Honduras, El Salvador, and Guatemala are facing the compounding impact of multiple crises. COVID-19 has devastated lives and livelihoods. The recent earthquake, drought and conflict in Haiti has led to increasing numbers of Haitians fleeing the country for safety and stability. And recently, families have been forced to return to dangerous situations they just left.
When you donate to Central American and Haitian refugees, you help families—many with children—who are facing unimaginable hardship and multiple emergencies at once.
For migrants who have to flee for safe refuge and opportunity, your gift supports a network of 35 faith-based and local shelters from Guatemala to Mexico. There, extremely vulnerable families receive the relief of a safe, dignified place to sleep, rest, eat and bathe. They also benefit from psychological, legal, and medical counseling. Assistance is also provided if they are being returned to their home countries.
In their home countries, your gift helps provide urgent food and shelter, protect kids against trafficking, keeps children in school, and helps youth stay out of gangs in some of the toughest neighborhoods. The support helps create greater safety and opportunity so that families don't feel the urgency to flee their homes and countries.
Your prayers and support are urgently needed. Please give generously and donate to the migration crisis and help families in Central America and Haiti.
