URGENT: Emergency Humanitarian Relief at the Border

Donate today to help sustain our humanitarian aid efforts at the border

There is a humanitarian crisis ongoing at the border as we are seeing drastically increased numbers of asylum seekers crossing in remote mountain areas. Customs and Border Protection has not been adequately responding, at times even threatening humanitarian aid volunteers with arrest while leaving hundreds stranded in deadly, hypothermic conditions. No More Deaths / No Más Muertes, fellow humanitarian aid groups, community groups, and individuals have stepped up to help care for them, but the situation is continuing to escalate. The Tucson Sentinel wrote an article that illuminates the suffering and dire need, please check it out here.

Thus far we have re-allocated funds to manage this support, but those funds are running low and our work is far from over. We are asking our community to help us by making a donation today so we can continue to provide blankets, clothing, food, shoes, and other humanitarian aid. Our volunteers are working tirelessly to get these supplies directly to the people in danger of hypothermia and exposure due to the winter weather.

If you would prefer to send your donation via mail, please be sure to indicate that it is for Emergency Border Wall Support send it to:
No More Deaths
PO Box 40782
Tucson, AZ 85717

Monetary support is greatly appreciated, but we are also excited to announce that we will temporarily be able to accept physical donations at the Global Justice Center at 225 E 26th St, Tucson, AZ, for our local supporters. You can drop off daily, any time between 9:00am and 7:00pm until January 9th.
