Summary

Children's rights continue to be violated at the border. Vulnerable and terrified, young boys and girls are being held in custody longer than the legal limit, being separated from their families, and more. Save the Children is on the ground at the U.S.-Mexico Border, assisting families who have been released from U.S. detention facilities. A donation to our U.S. Border Crisis Children's Relief Fund will support our programmatic and advocacy work at the border.

Challenge

For years brutal gangs and entrenched poverty has driven children and families to flee the Northern Triangle of Central America and seek safety and protection in the Unites States. Save the Children is gravely concerned about the treatment and well-being of children who are in the custody of the United States government after crossing the U.S.-Mexico border. Children's rights continue to be violated - being held in custody longer than the legal limit and being separated from their families.

Solution

Save the Children is continuing to address the root causes of migration through our work in Central America with longstanding programs primarily focused on children and adolescents in El Salvador, Honduras, Guatemala and Mexico. Our work at the border is focused on delivering immediate humanitarian aid to newly arrived children and families. We are supporting transit shelters that care for children and families after they are released by U.S. Customs & Border control.

Long-Term Impact

Currently, Save the Children is growing the capacity of local transit centers on the southern U.S. border that serve children and families after being released by U.S. Customs & Border Patrol. We are providing our renowned child-friendly spaces, where kids can be kids again, express themselves and begin to cope. Our child safeguarding experts are ensuring children are protected and providing technical training to local municipalities about how to safely serve children.
