Custer Road Returns to Casa Bugambilia in January 2020
Juntos Servimos Mexico Mission Trip 2020 | January 17-20, 2020
Hands from Custer Road helped build Casa Bugambilia in Matamoros, Mexico in 2003, the medical refuge run by Dr. Nancy Rodriguez-Cox and Larry Cox. Although we have not volunteered there since 2010, the facility continues to house, feed and care for 15-25 medically fragile people. Custer Road supports it through Juntos Servimos and the Esperanza 5K.
Since October 2018, Casa Bugambilia has also been serving as a shelter for 25-95 families and individuals from around the world who are awaiting their hearing with an immigration judge to seek asylum in the United States. Larry, Dr. Nancy and the staff at Casa Bugambilia continue to do what they have always done, provide a compassionate response to peoples’ needs. They have provided a safe place to stay with beds, bathrooms, food, laundry facilities and space for children to be children. This is all taking place among the permanent medically fragile residents of Casa Bugambilia. It is such a beautiful sight! Come join us in providing a compassionate response to our neighbors in need.
Some of the planned activities include:
- Maintenance and upkeep of the overused facilities, including carpentry, painting and cleaning.
- Laundry- over 100 blankets
- Preparing and serving meals for 60-100 people.
