“For the dignity of the migrant”
Since the very beginning, ABBA has worked closely with the Red Cross to treat individuals injured during their journey. Both organizations recognized an urgent need among amputees to have a safe place to rehabilitate. They saw that migrants who become amputees have their passage delayed and they are forced to readjusted the vision they have for themselves and for their families. Based on this apparent need ABBA house, with the support of the International Committee of the Red Cross and INGUDIS Guanajuato, has become the first shelter in Mexico to accommodate amputees. They look to provide individuals with prosthetics, therapy, and other needs while they are in recovery.
Basic Services offered during rehabilitation :
