Migrants in Mexico
Every year, an estimated 400,000 people flee violence and poverty in El Salvador, Honduras and Guatemala and enter Mexico with the hope of reaching the United States. In Mexico, they are systematically exposed to further episodes of violence.

In 2016, more than 15,000 migrants and refugees from Central America were registered in the shelters where we work.

We provide mental health care and consultations in Ixtepec, Tenosique, Celaya, Mexico City, Acapulco, and Colonia Jardín.

In Tierra Caliente, Guerrero state, rural health posts were closed due to violence. We provided emergency obstetric services, including caesarean sections, in Arcelia hospital, and started to run mobile clinics in San Miguel Totolapan and General Heliodoro Castillo municipalities.

"I fled Honduras because the gangs wanted to recruit me and I refused."

The story of 17-year-old José* is representative of many of the young patients we care for in our projects in Tegucigalpa and Choloma, in Honduras, and Reynosa, Mexico.
