Benito (Benny) is from Matamoros Tamaulipas and has worked for GRM as office manager for several years. He feels he has been given the opportunity to help those in need and blessed he is in a place to do so. This was his first time working in a medical environment and he has come to love helping patients as much as he can and now helps GRM whenever we need him to as Benny was always viewed as a leader at GRM’s Matamoros clinic, where he worked before it closed in 2022.
He’s called upon to navigate complex issues that arise among migrant patients and manages to stay calm whenever he is resolving issues. He’s vital to operations—organizing patients throughout the day, arranging referrals, and ensuring that all staff and volunteers have what they need to perform their duties. What Benny loves about his job the most is, “Seeing happy faces. I pray for all of them all the time.”
