Migrants participated as volunteers in rehabilitating the median

Juarez City.- A group of migrants living in the Enrique “Kiki” Romero municipal gymnasium planted trees and rehabilitated the median of De los Aztecas Avenue, where they removed tons of soil, while they waited for their appointment to enter the United States.

“This is our small contribution as a thank you for the help we received, we were not forced or obliged, and we only worked for about two hours, but because there were many volunteers we were able to progress quickly, ” said Cristóbal, from Venezuela.

He said he decided to volunteer in the initiative, in gratitude to Ciudad Juárez and the way they were welcomed.

According to the coordinator of the shelter and director of Human Rights of the Municipality, Santiago González Reyes, they were invited to participate in the beautification of the median of De los Aztecas Avenue as a gesture of gratitude to the community.

“200 meters of the median were painted and 16 endemic trees were planted, thus contributing to the preservation of the city’s natural environment,” he reported.

The General Coordination of Road Safety and Parks and Gardens joined the action, for greater safety of people and coordination of action.

“In my case, it allowed me to stay active while I waited for my appointment through the CBP One application. Here they gave us a very honorable environment, for which I am very grateful,” shared José, a migrant from Venezuela.

He assured that the activities are completely voluntary, as a thank you to the community that gave them a decent space during their stay.

González Reyes said that this initiative not only beautifies the urban environment, but also promotes unity and understanding between different communities. And he remembers that in the past the groups of people who live in “Kiki” Romero dedicated efforts to the rehabilitation of a nearby park and now decided to intervene in the median that is in front of the shelter of the shelter.

Daniel Zamarrón, director of Parks and Gardens, reported that on this occasion three species of endemic trees that require little maintenance to thrive in the city’s environment are reserved.

In the course of 2023, a total of 3,160 migrants have access to municipal shelter services, where they are offered accommodation, three meals a day, medical care, spaces for exercise and mobility, education regularization programs for children, libraries, maternity. area, personal hygiene areas, air conditioning, children’s playground and recreational areas.
