Mission Statement

Our mission is to assist in the location, identification, and repatriation of as many as possible of the 1,000 plus immigrants who die on U.S. soil each year trying to enter the U.S. through our southerrn border. Our primary goal is to locate and identify these victims and get them returned to their homes so that they may be buried in a decent and dignified manner by their families and loved ones.

Description

Through DNA testing and constant contact with authorities and other immigrant assistance organizations, we attempt to make positive identification of deceased "John Does" found by authorities in the harsh desert areas of our southern border with Mexico.

Once we can locate and make positive identification of a victim, our mission is to notify next of kin, and then actually transport and escort the remains of the victim to his/her country and city or pueblo of origin for safe delivery where they can be buried in a decent and dignified manner.
