Frontera de Cristo is a Presbyterian border ministry located in the sister cities of Agua Prieta, Sonora and Douglas, Arizona. While they have six primary areas of ministry, World Next Door spent time on the border writing about the Migrant Resource Center.
The Migrant Resource Center is a partnership of many people and organizations working together toward the common goal of helping migrants. Migrants, especially those who have been recently deported, have many basic humanitarian needs – and a fresh pair of socks, a burrito, and basic medical attention for dehydration and blisters goes a long way.
To help inform migrants about their options and, when necessary, provide abuse documentation. This is used to better understand the situation migrants face, and in some cases, help victims of crimes pursue legal options.Click to read our articles about the Migrant Resource Center!
Consider donating to the Migrant Resource Center. You can also make clothing, food and toiletry donations (mostly people in Arizona who are close by). The center always needs help with resources to continue caring for our migrant brothers and sisters on the border.
Frontera de Cristo offers opportunities for individuals & groups to be involved in both long and short term projects along the U.S./Mexico border. For more information, click here.
