Save the Children U.S. Border Crisis Update

Marta* and her children
Marta* and her children

Marta* is a migrant mother from Honduras. She left her country with her three young children because of gender violence. The physical attacks that she and her children suffered from her partner were of such magnitude that they feared for their lives.

Marta* denounced her partner and he was arrested. However, the same day he was arrested the authorities released him. With her ex-partner free, Marta* left for the United States. In the United States, she was returned to Mexico, where she has been waiting for her immigration process for 15 months.

Thousands of children making the dangerous journey to the United States are being held in Mexican shelters that are rapidly filling up, with some lacking basic necessities.

Since 2018 Save the Children in Mexico has had a humanitarian response to support migrant children and their families. Currently they opperate 26 Child Friendly Spaces where a team of specialists provides psychological first aid, emergency education, provision of fresh and nutritious food, identification and referral of cases to families with protection needs, as well as personal hygiene, menstrual and cleaning kits.
