Pop-Up Clinic for Refugees in TJ

Created May 1, 2018

The arrival of the refugee caravan has brought to light that there are hundreds of people who are in desperate need of basic health and sanitary attention. Including the recent caravan, there are many refugees seeking asylum at the Mexico-US border who have traveled a long ways to escape poverty, crime and even death. These very vulnerable populations will need our help.

San Diego Border Dreamer will work to bring various healthcare providing organizations like the Flying Samaritans (UCSD), the International Health Collective (UCSD), as well as Juventus 2000 shelter in Tijuana, MX, to address the fundamental healthcare needs of these refugees. We are fundraising to set up a pro-bono clinic to make sure that those seeking asylum can have some of their healthcare needs met during their wait at the border.

This will be a temporary pop-up clinic that will be put up in mid May and it will run for 2-3 weekends to make sure we can see as many patients as possible. We are asking the community to come together in support of the refugees and to help fundraise. 100% of the donations will be used to purchase basic medical, first aid, sanitary supplies as well as helping the shelter that is housing refugees.  Receipts to all purchases will be posted on the San Diego Border Dreamers Facebook page as means of transparency. These supplies will be utilized by volunteer physicians, medical students, pharmacists, and nurses to make sure the healthcare demands of the patients are met. Excess supplies will be donated to various clinics in TJ. Furthermore, if you can donate medical supplies or volunteer as a physician, nurse, or a general volunteer please contact me at our Facebook :  https://www.facebook.com/SDBDreamers/ or at our email: sandiegoborderdreamers@gmail.com

Everyone has a right a to healthcare, no matter where you are from, and we can work together to provide that right to members of the caravan and other refugees.
