The number of families seeking refuge is overwhelming. Most of them arrive at the US-Mexico border towns with no possessions, little or no money and the heartbreak of leaving behind family, familiarity, friends, and pets.
The rate of families trapped in the poverty cycle of Mexican people is also immense. Their eagerness to participate in our offerings to help them go forward with education and hope is deeply moving and inspiring.
At One Story at a Time, we continue to see individual families progressing from vulnerable, hopeless beginnings into new hope, new opportunities, new lives. We are honored to contribute. We hope you join us.
Because families are often in danger, due to the circumstances that made them leave, we change the names in the stories we collect and only include a very small amount of information.
OUR PANDEMIC RESPONSE
In these troubled and troubling days of the COVID-19 pandemic, One Story at a Time and Little Mercies are combining efforts to help a number of people in shelters in Mexican border towns confront the peril with food, medicine, masks, and hygiene products.
