Humanist Crisis Response is now raising funds for The Florence Immigration and Refugee Rights Project and KIND (Kids In Need of Defense), two organizations helping refugee children from Central America who are attempting to enter the United States.
The child migration crisis in the United States continues to escalate. The Obama Administration estimates up to 90,000 children from Latin American countries will be apprehended and taken into custody this year, many of them unaccompanied by adults.
FEMA and other agencies are providing refugee children at the US border with basic necessities. It is the next level of need — ensuring the human rights and legal protection of the individual refugees — that is the focus of our current beneficiaries.
