AIDING MIGRANTS AND MAQUILA COMMUNITIES IN JUAREZ
On International Women's Day March 8, 2022, the Barefoot Acupuncture Movement is raising funds for women in Ciudad Juarez, Mexico as they rebuild their acupuncture programs.
This Barefoot Project is women-led, and here you will meet those doing the work of serving migrant and maquila communities in the borderlands.
STORIES OF REFUGEES AT THE BORDER
"Maria Luisa, originally from the state of Oaxaca, arrived with her family eight months ago in Ciudad Juarez. She has been living at the San Romero shelter, where she first received acupuncture. Sometimes she is afraid of the needles, but she attends regularly because they help her with stress and headaches. Her family is one of the thousands of Mexicans who have been displaced by violence from their places of origin, they were threatened with death in a way that I would not wish on anyone. Now they are waiting for the opportunity to cross the border, seek asylum in the US, and find a better future for their children. She is sure that they can no longer return to their town in Southern Mexico."
SUPPORT SOLIDARITY & TINY NEEDLES
This year, our Barefoot Acupuncture Movement is choosing to support disaster relief community health workers on the US/Mexico Border. We do this out of solidarity with refugees who are homeless in Ciudad Juarez, Mexico. Below is how you can make a donation. And here's a few links to learn more about our project in Juarez, Mexico.
DONATE $50 OR MORE, GET A FREE T SHIRT
With your support, our Barefoot Schools in Latin America will keep walking with local community health workers, and putting tools like acupuncture into their hands to aid with stress, trauma and community recovery.
IMPACT OF EMPATHY: RIPPLES OF TINY EFFORTS
It costs 50 Cents for supplies for one treatment. Tell us how many other therapies that can beat that. This means your dollars go a long long ways towards helping another woman and her children fleeing north to the border for a safer life.
$20 = Supplies for 40 treatments for displaced person
$80 = Supplies for 160 treatments for displaced persons
$100 = Supplies for 200 treatments in under-resourced areas
$500 = Sponsor a woman volunteer to apprentice in our Barefoot Schools as a community health worker
$5,000 = Train an entire village in Central America to teach them how to integrate acupuncture into their local health system.
