Three compassionate artists performing together in the round to benefit Save the Children
Increasing numbers of children fleeing violence and insecurity in their Central American and Mexican communities are seeking refuge in the United States. According to government estimates, more than 50,000 children have crossed the border, with as many as 90,000 expected this year. Thousands of children are in custody of the U.S. Customs Border Protection in facilities struggling to meet the basic needs of such large numbers of children. These children are in urgent need of protective and supportive care, medical and hygiene care, and nutritious meals.
Save the Children is on the scene, providing child protection activities and programs, including Child Friendly Spaces to give these children access to structured play, emotional support and supervision provided by caring adults.
