Three Ways to Donate
One of the ways that Abara is actively serving on the US/Mexico frontier is to connect shelters and other organizations with the resources they desperately need to serve asylum seekers. Click the link below for a currently list of items and supplies that these organizations are currently requesting.
A tax deductible financial contribution to Abara will help support local shelters and other needs. It costs about $40/day to provide the basic needs and shelter for one family. Most of the shelters in Juarez need help paying utilities, and some are looking to renovate new facilities to expand their efforts.

Many people are looking for ways to volunteer their time. Because this situation changes from day to day, short-term volunteer opportunities are limited. However, we do recommend that you take part in a Border Encounter where you will learn to identify and discern the best way to volunteer on the border or back in your own hometown.
I want to get involved, but I don't know how.
Here are a few additional ways you can get involved today:
- Pray for safety, health, comfort, hope & faith for those fleeing danger, and for the provision of immediate basic necessities.
- Become a fundraiser for the effort by clicking on the link below. The process is simple and easily shareable via email or social media.
- Donate or provide funding for a 15-passenger van or a pickup truck.
- Consider bringing a group to El Paso/Juarez for a Border Encounter to experience in person the realities of the US-Mexico border and better understand how to assist in the effort.
