As the migrant crisis escalates and so negatively affects many innocent children, along with their families, Glasswing continues to provide critical support. We are committed to helping children and families in Latin America, as well as those facing the incredible challenges brought on by forced migration.
We have provided humanitarian relief to Central American migrants at detention centers in Tapachula, and are partnering with the New Sanctuary Coalition in New York City to aid unaccompanied minors and migrant Latino families. We are placing trained volunteers, and working to provide mental health support and Psychological First Aid to migrants to mitigate the levels of trauma resulting from the migration process and family separation.
Now, more importantly than ever, we are calling for volunteers, as well as financial donations. We are looking for New York City based volunteers to help in: translation services, document gathering and intake assessments, court accompaniment (training provided), case planning, and/or mental health support/mentorship.
In El Salvador we also continue our work to improve the infrastructure of the Immigration Center in San Salvador and have team members providing much-needed care and support to returning families who are returning on a weekly basis, indefinitely. These efforts have helped thousands of returnees.
