Thanks to our generous donors, lost migrants near the US/Mexico border now have a fighting chance at survival.
Aguilas del Desierto is a program that saves migrants who are lost or abandoned on the U.S. side of the Mexican border and offers a hotline for families to call when searching for loved ones who are missing.
On numerous occasions, after a long weekend of searching the desert, the rescue vehicles have broken down and volunteers have had to wait dangerously on the side of the highway, for 3 to 5 hours before roadside assistance arrives.
With full funding, the volunteers of Aguilas del Desierto can begin to replace the current rescue vehicles with newer, more reliable off-road vehicles and trucks.
With new vehicles, this program will be able to serve 2,000.
