Pope donates $ 500,000 to migrants to Mexico
Pope Francis I donated $ 500,000 to help migrants in Mexico at the US border, News.am reported citing BBC News.
The amount was donated by the Peter Pens Foundation to the Catholic Church.
“In 2018, six migrant caravans entered Mexico, for a total of 75,000 people. The arrival of other groups was announced. All these people were stranded, unable to enter the United States, without a home or livelihood. The Catholic Church hosts thousands of them in the hotels within dioceses or religious congregations, providing basic necessities, from housing to clothing,” the statement said adding: "In this context, Pope Francis donated US $500,000 to assist migrants in Mexico. This amount will be distributed among 27 projects in 16 dioceses and among Mexican religious congregations that have asked for help in order to continue providing housing, food and basic necessities to these our brothers and sisters.”
