THE STORY:

Patricia E Zuniga wrote -

Help homeless individuals living in the cement-lined canals in Tijuana. The majority of these people are undocumented immigrants who have been deported from the U.S., regardless of their place of origin, and they need help. Many of them lack identification which prevents them from accessing health care and makes getting a job extremely difficult. Living conditions are bleak. The canals are normally littered with trash, including used needles and fecal matter, although they are also prone to flash floods. Dr. Patty Gonzales and a Team of volunteers has been doing basic wound care in the canals each week (see attached photos) and supplies are always short. Since last July, she has been able to see approximately 16 to 30 patients on a weekly basis for a total of 298 consults in 20 sessions. By returning weekly, she has been able to build rapport with these individuals, gain their trust, and follow up with them on a variety of medical condition. In addition, she has made 71 referrals to the Health Frontiers in Tijuana (HFit) clinic and link them to additional care and services. To continue helping those in need, here is our supply wish list:
