Most unaccompanied children in the U.S. come from Honduras, El Salvador, and Guatemala – three of the most dangerous countries in the world.
The number of unaccompanied minors detained at the US/Mexico border doubled during 2019 to more than 75,000 children.
Over half of the children in U.S. immigration proceedings have no one to represent them.
Children without representation are more than twice as likely to be deported back to danger.
Podoconiosis (podo) is a devastating and disfiguring disease caused when bare feet are exposed to volcanic soil. It affects millions of people in more than 15 countries, yet is preventable and treatable with simple washing and proper footwear. If farm workers are educated, podo can be eliminated in our lifetime.
