Dear COHI Family,
The definition of emergency and care seem to have transformed this year. In the middle of a respiratory pandemic, is a cough an emergency? As wildfires destroy homes 50 miles away, is the smoke burning your lungs an emergency?
This has been a year of shifting perspectives, which is why COHI is now working to shift, and ultimately expand, our Emergency Medical Care Fund. Though migrants awaiting asylum in Mexico will still be a key part of our strategy, we have now also begun working with migrants who have made in to the US and are in desperate need of help.
Whether that's a 22 year old Honduran woman who's just given birth to her daughter and doesn't have a home to go to tonight. Or the Guatemalan father of three who's children have no way of getting to school now that public transportation has become dangerous.
COHI is working with each family individually to identify their needs, provide them with funds and resources, and support them in remaining healthy and safe. Will you join us?
