Volunteers Drop Water in Desert to Aid Migrants

“Humanitarian Aid Is Never a Crime”

Por Democracy Now

HAVANA TIMES – Volunteers with the humanitarian aid group No More Deaths have been venturing into the harsh Sonoran Desert for years to leave water, food and other life-saving supplies for migrants crossing the U.S.-Mexico border.

They have faced resistance from Customs and Border Patrol officers, who often destroy the aid when they find it. Democracy Now! accompanied a group of volunteers on a recent water drop in the desert.
