San Diego Church Working to Transition Thousands of Haitian Migrants Fleeing Brazil

SAN DIEGO, CA — Right now, the Haitian Methodist Church of San Diego is overwhelmed.

For the past four months, church members and members of the Haitian Bridge Alliance, a collective of community leaders working to help the Haitian community and recent migrants to the U.S., have been facilitating the arrival of massive numbers of Haitians fleeing Brazil seeking a better life. They have received over 2,000 migrants so far, and expect nearly three times that number in the coming months.
