More than 3000 asylum-seekers, half of them children under ten, are living in a state of intense danger in Matamoros, Mexico. They lack access to basic services such as shelter, sanitation, food, water, education, etc. and suffer from disease and ongoing violence from local cartels. This problem is worsening as new migrants arrive each day and are forced to remain–potentially for years–pursuant to US government policies.
Project Adelante mobilizes resources and expertise across disciplines (refugee camp management, law, medicine, mental health, child development, and religion) to assess the range of needs in Matamoros and work with partners to effectively respond to this humanitarian crisis.
We can provide support in six areas: basic humanitarian response, human rights and legal support, health and mental health, child development and education, religious support and fellowship, and witness and communications.
