During the COVID-19 pandemic we continue to be guided by our mission statement above. How we accomplish this has changed. We hold Zoom meetings bi-weekly using phones, computers or tablets. Please join us for the next meeting. We have suspended Communications Group meetings. Operation Streamline is closed in Tucson. Desert searches and water drops continue but with less frequency. To relieve the increased level of migrant suffering due to the pandemic and recent immigration enforcement practices, consider donating to one of these Resources for Immigrants and Migrants or to the GVS Samaritans. Here are ways to Join GVS Samaritan Activities now. Thank you.
We Provide Humanitarian Aid
We respect human rights and one's ethical responsibility to those who are suffering.
