Presbyterian Disaster Assistance (PDA) is responding to the humanitarian crisis that has been happening along the southern U.S. border. There has been a dramatic increase in the number of unaccompanied children crossing into the United States, with more than 52,000 arriving so far this year. The majority of the children are from El Salvador, Guatemala and Honduras.
