Working in partnership with Refugee Health Alliance (RHA) and local clinic Prevencasa, FATB works diligently to build the capacity of Tijuana’s shelters and clinics to address the growing primary care needs of the increasing refugee population.
Delivering much needed medications and supplies (medical and non-medical). Our partner shelters and clinics have communicated a desperate need for medications, medical supplies, and necessities for sanitation, warmth, and safety.
The alarming rise of COVID19 in many areas along the border have over-burdened already strained clinics. Continuing with our partnerships in Tijuana, FATB is supporting the integration of telehealth programs in clinics through technology resource donations to provide for the safe care of patients.
Eight Trips To The Border Completed
Eight providers have made the trip and three associated volunteers
Our providers range from Pediatrics, Emergency, Ob/Gyn, Family, and Internal medicine
Nine Suitcases Stocked with Essential Supplies Distributed
Suitcases filled with clothing, reproductive health supplies, and hygeinie kits among other care items have been sent over to partner clinics working at the border. Supplies of these items have been made possible by the work of our generous donors and volunteers!
***Border Donations are tax-deductible***
