Donate: Support Families
& Other Ways to Help

 

Donate to Ever and Family

Ever, his wife Gladys, their three year old son, and infant daughter were separated when they came to the united states.  Father and son were reunited here in Michigan and then were able to travel to Houston where the whole family was reunited.  They settled in Houston in a one-bedroom apartment that they share with extended family.  

We reconnected with Ever and his family when we found out that they had run out of infant formula and that their pro bono lawyer was paying for their travel to legal and medical appointments.  We have since been able to help them with the $2,500 that donors had contributed and an Amazon registry.  This money has gone a long way and Ever and Gladys are deeply grateful for all of the help.  I cannot tell you how many thank you texts and photos they send! 

Their son is suffering immense, and fairly predictable, repercussions from the traumatic separation trauma that he experienced.  When he was first reunited with his mom, he didn’t recognize her and tried to run away.  He is doing so much better now, but he desperately needs to be on a schedule.  Seven hundred and fifty dollars a month is enough for this family to rent a 1 bedroom apartment of their own.   By donating to IFT’s Rapid Response Fund you are helping to support Ever, his family, and other families effected by cruel immigration policies.


Donate to GABRIEL and Family

Please note that this family’s story was previously posted using different names. Given this family’s continued fear of persecution their names have been changed.  As one of the first families MSC helped to reunite, Gabriel and his now four year old son, Aden hold a special place in our hearts.  Gabriel is a kind and thoughtful man who adores his son. Gabriel, his wife Paola, and son left their home country in May of 2018 and made the dangerous journey to the US looking for refuge. They arrived at the border, but they were detained and separated. The little boy was taken away with no explanation and flown, alone, across the country to Michigan. He was reunited with his father last summer but remains separated from his mother.

***UPDATE*** Paola was released from detention and has just been reunited with her family. By donating to IFT’s Rapid Response Fund you are helping to support Gabriel, Paola, their son and other families effected by cruel immigration policies.


Purchase goods for a MOM in need:

Laydi and her daughter have recently been reunited.   To comply with laws, Laydi is unable to work and, therefore, provide essentials for her family so we are asking for your help.   They were recently forced to move out of their shared apartment and rely on the kindness of a friend to house them. With the weather changing, appropriate clothing is a luxury they cannot afford.   If you are interested in purchasing some essentials for this family, please look at their Amazon Registry.


Purchase goods for a MOM in need:

While Flori is with 3 of her children, she is separated from her oldest 2. Flori and her family are in desperate need of essentials like food and toilet paper.  Things like hats, scarves and children’s books are luxuries at the moment but are on the registry as well. Flori is a strong woman and devoted mother. Like many of us, she will do whatever she can for her children. If you are interested in purchasing some essentials for Flori’s family, please look at their Amazon Registry.


Purchase Goods for a child in need:

Sofia is a brave girl. She has gone through so much in her short 13 years.  She was left in the care of her grandparents when she was 6 months old, unable to travel. Finally, 12.5 years later, Sofia began the grueling journey of coming from her home country to the US so that she could live with her parents once again. She needed help due to health problems, so her aunt made the journey with her. After arriving at the border, Sofia was separated from her aunt and detained. Sofia is living in a hospital now and feels very lonely. We are working on reuniting Sofia with her family. Lets get her some things that will make her feel more welcome in this long journey home.  Her Amazon Registry is below.
