Dear COHI Family,
We write to you in the midst of a global pandemic. We are in a global health crisis that the world has never seen before. And we are more distanced than ever.
Our partners everywhere are reporting extreme circumstances. In Matamoros, where many migrants are currently awaiting asylum, we have been told of an extreme lack of PPE (personal protective equipment) and sanitation products. This has led to unsustainable and dangerous medical services.
You must understand, the challenge of COVID-19 somtimes feels insurmountable in places like Italy and the US - but it is also happening in Syria, Puerto Rico, and along the Mexican border. How can you wash your hands when you have no running water? How can you self-quarantine when you're living in a refugee camp? How can you be tested when you have no access to medical centers?
That's why COHI has been working hard to get medical supplies to our partners at the border. We've been able to ship boxes and boxes of masks, gloves, isolation gowns, and other essential supplies during these trying times. But there is still such a great need.
Please join us in our efforts to keep EVERYONE safe. Donate today.
