Casa Tochan's aim is to assure the respect of human rights of male refugees, elders or gay through Mexico City. Refugees in Mexico are in a vulnerable situation because violence and poverty in their countries forced them to cross Mexico precariously. Their fragile situation worsens due to discriminatory practices by society and governmental institutions in Mexico. Due to the limited space in Casa Tochan, they only receive male refugees who are either elder or gay.
Casa Tocha provides the following services to refugees:
Professional advice to regularize their legal status so that they can either stay in the country or keep on moving to the USA
Medical and psychological services
Food, clothing and a home
Moreover, Casa Tochan collects information about refugees. Together with other NGOs, Casa Tochan produces statistical information about refugees' situation in Mexico in order to better understand their needs.
Sensitive and empathic towards refugees
Open-minded and willing to share time with people of a different culture and social status
Casa Tochan appreciates if the volunteer has skills to share with refugees (sports, art, language, etc.)
