World Relief Southern California has begun a border initiative to respond to the heightened influx of vulnerable families at the international border between the United States and Mexico.
Over the past several months, staff members of World Relief Southern California have gone to Tijuana, Mexico to offer free legal consultations to families looking to gain entry into the United States to apply for asylum. They have visited shelters where women and children that are seeking asylum reside. Additionally, they have witnessed people waiting in line for "their turn" to speak with officers about entering the United States, families visiting one another through the fence at the border, and have heard the many different life stories of these asylum seekers and what has brought them to the border.
Our office will provide more details about this initiative over the coming months. Through partnerships with churches, the community, and individuals like you, World Relief Southern California can help serve the needs of vulnerable families at the border.
