Refugee Camp In Tijuana, Mexico

I at times take for granted living so close to the Mexican border.  For years my Mother and I have been donating clothes and food to those in need at various orphanage and community centers in Tijuana, that it didn’t occur to me how little it is known about the refugee camps ever growing as each day passes.

There is a strong mix of people from Haiti since the Hurricane devastated their country to many others from the South migrating in search of food, shelter and a new life.  My Mother and her church group have made trips to such camps to deliver the sacks of rice, beans, clothes and items we’ve been able to collect for them.

It’s difficult to see the AMAZING work that many Humans are doing (and have been doing for years) with the headlines taking over our news stations and feed.  I want to affirm that there are a multitude of people that have always answered the call for help, you just don’t know it.

Now is the time for more actions to take place and hope this short, but very important post, will add you to this legion of worker bees spreading hope when hope is hard to find.

If you’d like to donate, the following are a few non-profit organizations that are helping the Tijuana refugee camps directly.  PLEASE review the organization’s goals as I am not affiliated to them:

Border Angels

Center For Migration Studies

Haiti Project Donations

Recent Reports that I quickly gathered:
PBS video
NBC San Diego Report

    Wow, it can be so easy to be overwhelmed by one’s own… stuff. I didn’t even think that there would be actual refugee camp in Tijuana. Thanks for sharing this info! It’s so good to hear about your mother’s help!

      It’s difficult to see the GOOD that happens around us, and so glad to bring awareness to what is happening in the U.S./American border. I hope that others will help as it needs as many of us to do so.
      Thank you for reading!
