First aid for migrants deported from US into MexicoAdd to Cart Add to Lightbox Download
Dawn Gustafson, from Vail, Arizona, treats the foot of Cira Salinas, a migrant from Oaxaca, Mexico, who was captured by the U.S. Border Patrol in southern Arizona and deported back across the border to Nogales, Mexico, where she sought help from the Catholic-sponsored Kino Border Project. Gustafson, a member of the Green Valley Samaritans, volunteers at the Project's Comedor, where deported migrants receive food, clothing and medical care. Much of the medical care provided in the center is to migrants' feet, which are often left blistered and wounded by the long and dangerous desert trek. Gustafson is a member of the Good Shepherd United Church of Christ in Sahuarita, Arizona.
