Latina student of fundraiser:

Hello! My name is Carla Romero and I am a Latina college student who is organizing a fundraiser for Stanford’s Families at the Border, a group of doctors who give medical care to immigrant families at the border.

I am transforming the front of my home into a grand Day of the Dead altar, and the community will be able to come by, enjoy, and support the cause. I would love to share this with the Latino community in the Bay Area.

 

Thank you for visiting the Families at the Border fundraising page – right here!

Join us the 30th of October-2nd of November to experience an authentic Dia de los Muertos Altar to make this season extra spooky!

Please socially distance as you walk by or drive by the Dia de los Muertos Exposition.

Show support by donating cash as you admire the ofrenda, or donate here!

We will also be accepting hygiene kit supplies such as small soaps, toothbrushes, feminine products. etc.

 

Families at the Border (FATB):

A humanitarian group of doctors, medical students, and affiliated professionals, Families at the Border (FATB) operates under the overarching goal of improving the health and well-being of refugee families in Tijuana.

With upwards to 10,000 refugees waiting in Tijuana to seek asylum since 2018, the California-Mexico border city faces unprecedented demands as health crises propagate in already crowded shelters and clinics. In response to the growing border crisis, Stanford affiliates congregated in a town hall meeting in July 2019, from which Families at the Border was formed. Since its inception, FATB has established partnerships with University of California, San Diego’s Refugee Health Alliance and a local Tijuana clinic.

Working in teams, our providers conduct monthly visits to Tijuana assessing the needs, resources, and priorities of our partnering shelters and clinics. These visits have resulted in the establishment of bimonthly women’s clinic for pregnant women and ongoing development of protocols for illnesses that commonly plague shelter occupants. Our supplies and outreach branch fundraises and leverages corporate and local connections to help supply medications, medical supplies, sanitary equipment, and any other needs specifically identified by our partners.

Medical supplies
Medications
Referrals for high-risk patients
Travel for students with financial need

We thank you in advance for all your support in caring for the families at our southern border!
