Frontera de Cristo is currently responding to an urgent need at a migrant support center, CAME (Centro de Atención al Migrante Exodus), in Agua Prieta, Mexico.
The number of Central American refugees sheltering at CAME has jumped to ~150 each night, in facilities built to house 44, due in large part to long processing wait times at the border.
CAME volunteers have attracted the attention and threats of local cartels, and Frontera is coordinating with the Presbyterian Peace Fellowship to provide accompaniment for volunteers and resources for CAME.
We will be taking a special offering on Sunday, June 16 to support these efforts. Checks can be made to “Western Presbyterian Church” with CAME in the memo line or you can give online (choose “CAME – Mission Giving”).
