Remedies Without Borders/Remedios Sin Fronteras

Please help us celebrate the project's 12th anniversary by making a donation!  

Remedies Without Borders/Remedios Sin Fronteras is an herbal medicine-making project supplying humanitarian aid organizations with salves, lip balms, foot powders, and other remedies for those on either side of the human-made US/Mexican border.  Remedies are distributed to those crossing the Sonoran desert, those who have been deported, and those presenting themselves for asylum, as well as long-term volunteers and residents of militarized border communities.

Our fundraising goal is set at $4,000 for our ongoing expenses.  We always need more containers for salves, lip balms, foot powder, and other remedies, as well as funds to cover shipping costs and supplies such as oil and beeswax.  The project has grown over the years as we've connected with more organizations.  We want to continue supporting those most impacted by racist and xenophobic policies and practices, as well as the caregivers and community members who have been forced to live with checkpoints, racial profiling, and militarization.  

Please help us grow this project, any amount is much appreciated!   Feel free to share this link with others who may be interested in supporting Remedies Without Borders/Remedios Sin Fronteras.
