With the immigration crisis on the border, some of those most impacted by the arduous journey as well as the continuous changes of policy and direction in applying for asylum are the children. LWCF is committed to easing the difficult journey of children who are seeking asylum at the border by supporting them with supplies and gestures that show them someone cares.

Our Impact

LWCF team members and volunteers have taken several trips to El Paso, Texas, to volunteer with child refugees seeking asylum with their families. Thanks to the support of our donors, LWCF has been able to bring children’s books in Spanish and stuffed animals to give each child one of each as they leave the safety of the shelter onto the next challenge in their journey. In addition, LWCF has purchased supplies and materials as specific needs have arisen.

We will continue to collect donations of new and used books and will ship by the box to our collaborators in El Paso. Donors can send Spanish language children’s paperback books to LWCF at:

LWCF Fundraiser for Child Asylum Seekers on the Border

LWCF Director Sherry Fine, new LWCF Board member Dennise Dalma and volunteer Cindi Smith have all created  Facebook Fundraisers to raise donations for child asylum seekers on the border in El Paso, Texas. Together, all three fundraisers have totaled over $5,000. Please help us double that amount before the end of 2019 by contributing to the LWCF Border Initiative Today.

Over the past few months LWCF Board members and volunteers have been volunteering at a border shelter in El Paso, Texas. At this location, families that have been traveling for weeks or months to get to the border arrive dehydrated, hungry and exhausted but determined to look for a better life. When they arrive, they explain how there was no other option for them but to flee their country of origin. Extreme poverty, drought and violence have left many of these families with only one alternative: to break the family in half and try their luck in the US. After ICE processes them, they arrive at the shelter with nothing but the clothes they are wearing. No phones, no money, no shoe laces, nothing. But they do arrive at the shelter with their beautiful children. Children who are incredibly grateful, resilient and whose faces are full of hope for a better life. When they leave the temporary shelter, they again head to uncertainty as they travel for days to an unknown place. Living Waters Children’s Fund has continued to organized to give each of the children a book and a stuffed animal for the rest of their journey across the United States, along with necessary supplies as support needs arise. Could you please help the kids by donating to the fund so that they can keep doing this? Every cent of every dollar raised goes directly to the children. Thank you for your support.

Your contribution will make an impact, whether you donate $5 or $500. Every little bit helps. Thank you for your support. If you have any trouble or need assistance in making a donation, please contact donations@lwcfund.org
