This pandemic has brought with it times of grave uncertainty. Nonetheless, we have been able to luxuriate in a secure home, nutritious food, and warm clothes. Some people are not so lucky. Immigrants have had to embark on a long and rigorous journey in search for a better home. They flee violence, economic difficulty, broken homes, extreme privation, and corrupt governments. Then when it seems as if they have reached their safe haven, they continue to lack all the basic necessities. Simply empathizing with them does not suffice when trying to facilitate their transition into a new world. If you want to help ease their hardships, please donate to any one of these locations. Donating clothes and other basic necessities to casas del migrante would greatly help, even if it may seem small to you. Here are some places to donate to.
