    Sharing and strengthening community

    Day 105

    A Feast of Gratitude

    This year has been one for the books. What used to feel mundane is now complicated, what we took for granted now glaringly missing. It’s been tough for all, but it’s been especially challenging for people in vulnerable situations.

    The Migrant Shelter La Casa de La Misericordia in Nogales, Mexico, is no exception. In March they moved to a new building, and since then, they have joined forces to carry out repair and renovation work to transform the space into a livable home for migrants.

    One of those projects was the construction of an artisanal adobe oven, where they can cook recipes and gather outside near the heat of the fire during times of cold weather—a safer option during the pandemic.

    In appreciation for all their effort and hard work, we hosted a dinner around the oven in honor of the shelter’s residents, volunteers, and coordination team.

    Starting with the preparation of the meals, it was a moment of sharing and strengthening the sense of community and friendship between the participants. Food tastes so much better when you have good company! Thanks to all of you for the love and energy!
