The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints has donated equipment and supplies to strengthen the operational capacity of 15 humanitarian spaces in Mexico for migrants and displaced persons.

The Church is collaborating with the Human Mobility Pastoral of the Mexican Episcopal Conference, which helps people in transit within Mexican territory.

“This is a donation that will help us fulfill our mission of helping those who need it most,” said Father Julio López Vivas, director of the Human Mobility Pastoral.

The donation will improve equipment in 11 shelters and four community kitchens in various states of Mexico. Items include refrigerators, purifiers, industrial washing machines, mattresses and fans. This support is expected to benefit more than 600,000 people during the first year.

These migrant houses provide shelter, clothing, legal assistance, food and other services to thousands of migrants in transit in Mexico. They come from all parts of the world — especially the Caribbean and Central and South America.
