Families escaping gang violence and persecution in Central America are undertaking a dangerous journey to seek safety in the United States. In response to the caravan of asylum-seeking families traveling north, the current US administration has threatened to close the country's southern border, as well as deny these families safe haven-a policy that not only violates international and U.S. laws, but deliberately leaves individuals in harm's way.

Caravans of families are traveling to escape violence in the "Northern Triangle" region of Central America: Honduras, Guatemala and El Salvador. They are in urgent need of aid and protection. Gang violence is rampant in the region-particularly targeting women and girls with threats of extortion and kidnapping. And El Salvador and Honduras have two of the highest murder rates of women in the world.


In El Salvador, the IRC is providing emergency assistance to help those who are most at risk find shelter and safety and to rebuild their lives. We have also launched CuentaNos, an interactive service that provides trustworthy, protection information for families affected by this crisis. In the U.S., the IRC will continue to help meet asylum-seekers' basic needs, facilitate family reunifications, connect people to critical legal services, and help them access mental health and medical support.

Long-Term Impact

You can help us continue this lifesaving work supporting those in need on both sides of the border by donating directly to this cause today. Together, we can provide relief and restore a measure of safety for families fleeing crisis.
