In Mexico and Central America, the humanitarian crisis has led CSOs to play increasingly important roles on the migration issue. Organisations located in areas along the border and migration routes have become key local social actors as providers of food and short-term lodging. The operationalisation of programmes providing psychosocial and legal counselling and other reintegration services has become increasingly frequent among these organisations.
This webinar presented the experiences of Mexico’s Sin Fronteras IAP (Without Borders IAP) and of the Honduran chapter of the Federación Internacional Fe y Alegría (International Federation Faith and Joy). Representatives of these organisations explained their comprehensive assistance models and how they have responded to their particular contexts.

- Mirna Deras, Federación Internacional Fe y Alegría Social Communication Manager (Honduras)
Discussant: Nuty Cárdenas Alaminos, Associate Professor, Interdisciplinary Programme in Migration Studies, Centre for Economic Research and Teaching (CIDE) (Mexico City)
