Since Spring 2022, migrants fleeing dire conditions in their home countries have arrived in New York, bussed from Southern states. According to the City of New York, over 120,000 have arrived. This rising number of asylum seekers has precipitated a humanitarian crisis. AID FOR LIFE is at the forefront of welcoming them to a new home, providing them with urgently needed help.

This is being done through our weekly "Jornadas", which are events to provide support and have taken different forms, including providing clothing/shoe donations and information/linkage to care for health services, legal services and other services available in New York City.

We need bilingual volunteers, as asylum seekers don't speak English.

We hold our jornadas on a weekly basis in the LES, from 10:30am to 1pm.
