Over the past few weeks, I have been researching and presenting to my grade about the humanitarian crisis at our border, specifically how children are being sent alone and are detained in immigration centers.
Researchers estimate that about 45 million people are being forced into poverty in Central America due to poor living, violence, and corruption. These children are being sent across the border by their parents in the hope of finding a better life.
My classmates and I did a Zoom letter writing campaign to our congressional representatives to take action and help make conditions for these children better. I am very grateful that these people decided to help me talk about this issue. With this in mind, I have created a middle-school donation account.
I hope that in hearing about this issue, you will help me take action towards this cause.
Thank you so much.
