About us

We are run by a team of volunteers eager to help migrants.

She believes being far from your comfort zone, family, friends, food and culture of origin can be transformed from a bubble of tears to a trampoline of good for everyone.


Andrés

His career protected him from many of the challenges and unfair treatments migrants go through, and he wants to use his privilege to help others weather crises better and improve migrant's rights, work against discrimination and work exploitation.
