Notes From The Field

Brendon Tucker and Erin Hughes describe the work that they have been doing in Matamoros, Mexico, for GRM and Resource Center Matamoros.

GRM’s Matamoros operation began as an emergency response to the closure of the asylum process at the US border in 2019 that resulted in thousands of women, men, and children living on the streets with no access to shelter, food, water or healthcare. An informal refugee camp formed swelling to more than 3,500 people at its peak. GRM teams scaled up quickly from sidewalk clinics to a full-time mobile medical unit in the camp and a second clinic outside treating more than 10,000 patients with conditions such as COVID-19, stab wounds, appendicitis, third-degree burns, pneumonia, influenza, severe acute malnutrition, and more. GRM ended full-time operations in the fall of 2022, shifting resources over to Reynosa, where the situation has become dire.
