46,128…Care for Children, part three: Take Action

July 2, 2019

Act on behalf of children.

While we (United Methodist Committee on Relief, hereafter UMCOR) cannot take UMCOR hygiene kits to the U.S. government holding centers, we are distributing UMCOR hygiene kits at transitional shelters all along the US-Mexico border.

In the last three months, UMCOR delivered 46,128 hygiene kits to six church-run transitional shelters. Instructions on how to make and send these kits are available at this webpage: https://www.umcmission.org/umcor/serve/relief-supply-network/hygiene-kit

You can also act by calling your U.S. elected officials. The following link to the General Board of Church and Society, our sister United Methodist agency responsible for advocacy, will give you some suggestions on issues to raise with these officials (https://www.umcjustice.org/what-you-can-do/advocacy/take-action/stand-with-immigrants-and-refugees).
