Emergency Fund for Migrants in Tijuana

Thousands of migrants have come north in search of a better, safer life and are now stuck in Mexico's border towns without the basic necessities - food, water, clothing, shelter, and medical attention. They are sleeping outside in tents through the rain and cold weather, and wait in long lines each day for little food. Our friend Father Jesse Esqueda and the San Eugenio Parish in Tijuana are working hard to provide for these basic needs. They are currently housing 20 women, children and young adults at the parish retreat center, and plan to bring in more as they are able. They are also bringing aid to the migrant camps and shelters.

This parish is a special place for me and my family, as I visited many times during my years at the University of San Diego, and even returned with my dad to run soccer camps and give donations of soccer equipment. I am so eager and proud to support the parish and their efforts, and I hope you'll join me! As we enter the Christmas season, please consider giving a donation today to provide for these basic needs of human beings in crisis. Any amount will make an impact on someone's life!

All donations will go to the Missionary Oblates of Mary Immaculate's migrant fund, which will go directly to the San Eugenio Parish in Tijuana. Thank you!35000088_1543642798729106_r.jpeg35000088_1543648561871988_r.jpeg35000088_1543648664475512_r.jpeg35000088_1543648687405807_r.jpeg
