Since February 7, 2019, Mi Maletin has collected donations for the families left without financial assistance owing to the Durham ICE Raids. Since that time we have raised a little over $2000.00. This total is current as of February 14, 2019.
In accordance with our stated goal, we will be disbursing that money to individuals in need. Advocates and afflicted family members can apply for assistance using this form.
We will create a Spanish language form as soon as we can.
Minimum qualifications for this pool of funds include the following:
1.) Money will benefit family members of someone detained by ICE or arrested by a law enforcement agency and now awaiting to be transferred to ICE custody
2.) The person detained/arrested or their family member must have Durham, NC, or Sanford, NC residency (either family member or person detained)
3.) The person arrested must be one of the principal breadwinners in the family
We will distribute funds up to $499.00 dollars to each applicant, and will do so on a basis we consider to be equitable. If we run out of funds, we will update all.
Thank you to all who are advocating and who contributed to this fund. And to all who need help, know that there are many people in Durham working for you.
