A helping hand on the journey al norte

This stunning short film celebrates the women of La Patrona, Veracruz and their quest for human solidarity.

As the trains with their cargoes of human traffic head north to the United States, carrying the dreams of migrants and their families who stay behind, a hand of friendship is extended by the woman of La Patrona in the Mexican state of Veracruz.

A reminder of our common humanity, the film had us in tears when we realised what is actually going on.

Please watch and pass on!
