Tijuana, Mexico, 2018+
Border-Fleeing poverty and violence many people are hoping to seek asylum in the US. Often stuck near the border waiting for their cases to be heard, they remain there unable to return home and with no place to stay. In Tijuana, the WCK Relief Kitchen, together with local restaurants, provided nourishing meals daily to migrants staying in shelters. After setting up first in Tijuana, WCK opened a second kitchen in Matamoros, Mexico.
