Support Hermelindo and Jefferson

$18,606 of $20,000 goal

Raised by 355 people in 4 months
Hermelindo & Jefferson were separated at the border on May 29, 2018. They were apart for 47 days! Hermelindo's only goal was to get Jefferson home before his 7th birthday on July 20, 2018.

All the joy he felt knowing that his son was coming home on July 14th quickly dissipated when he saw his son's condition. He was unresponsive and stiff, had lost weight, he had bumps all over his arms, and a bruise on his face.

Donations will go directly to Hermelindo & Jefferson. Help them pay for medical expenses, food, clothes, and anything else they need to help them get settled and recover from this traumatizing experience.

In honor of Jefferson’s birthday, we invited Hermelindo & Jefferson to the ImmDef office to share some good news with them. First, we showed them the print version of the LA Times with their story on the cover. Then we showed them the GoFundMe campaign. When we converted the amount raised to Guatemalan Quetzales, Hermelindo was floored. At first all he could say was, “Wow, Gracias!” He was humbled that so many people would share their hard earned money with them, and prayed that the other families that are in their situation also find themselves blessed with so much support. Thank you all for the generosity and kind words you’ve shared with this lovely family.
