Due to COVID-19, we, at RVRP, are limited in our efforts to offer relief to asylum seekers in Matamoros. Through our partnerships with other organizations we have been supplied needed donations to the camp in Matamoros. Currently we have been focusing on being of greater assistance to Refugee Services of Texas in our local communities.
When the border closed, World Central Kitchen began working with two local restaurants to feed the camps in Matamoros. If you would like to donate to their efforts, visit https://wck.org.
If you would like to make an in-kind donation or a monetary donation, we urge you to consider contacting Team Brownsville https://www.teambrownsville.org or Global Response Management https://www.global-response.org. They handle medical needs in the camp. You can also consider donating through us. Our PayPal is: info@riovalleyreliefproject. Donations are tax-deductible.
Additionally, we are opening a resource center in Dallas in the fall that will supply frequently needed items to asylum seekers in the DFW area and for families in transition along the border. If you would like to purchase any of the items listed below or have gently-used donations to drop off, please email Info@riovalleyreliefproject.org to set up a time to drop them off.
