Far too many children and families have had their rights violated while seeking asylum in the United States.

Seeking asylum is not a crime and separating children from their families unnecessarily is inhumane, traumatic and unacceptable.

Here are some ways that you can help vulnerable children at the U.S. Southern Border ⤵️

Even before the pandemic, 135 million people had been facing food shortages. Now, an estimated 265 million people could be pushed to the brink of starvation by the end of 2020.

Separating children from their families is cruel, traumatic and inhumane.

It is absolutely unacceptable that hundreds of families remain separated. Kids should not be subjected to such unimaginable trauma by the U.S. government.

The human immune system is amazing and incredibly complex. It will continue to function even if you’re taking precautions to protect your family from COVID-19. In fact, some researchers think wearing a mask may result in a lower viral load for those who are exposed to COVID-19, possibly resulting in an asymptomatic infection and resulting immunity. 😷👍
