Serving Hands International is proud to support Instituto Madre Assunta. “IMA”, an organization located in Tijuana Baja California dedicated to serving migrant women and children. From January through May 2012 IMA assisted more than 500 women and children. These women and children are often displaced and relocating due to deportation from the United States. They are often in limbo with no place to go. IMA welcomes the women with open arms, providing them with emotional support, temporary shelter, clothing, medical and legal assistance. “One of our clients called the other day to thank us”, said Mary Galvan from IMA. “Our client said she could have not imagined that there would have been an organization to support her through her ordeal. She was disoriented and had nowhere to go. Our client thanked us for opening up our doors and embracing her with kindness and understanding. We are all called to serve and it is an honor for SHI to partner with IMA. Serving Hands has partnered with Instituto Madre Assunta since 1980!
