To demonstrate how much your efforts are appreciated, after our providers offered help, one nun at Madre Asunta shared: "Bless you all. We do not have the knowledge of how to help, but we do our best to take care of the vagabonds that come" - Nun from Tijuana shelter

Recent Updates:

Shout out to Patagonia for donating jackets! Border Angels distributed amongst 3 shelters and perfect timing—next week will be a cold and rainy one in Tijuana. 

We had to blur the faces of the refugees to protect their identity, but I can assure you they wore great big smiles sporting brand new Patagonia jackets.
