Provinding Healthcare to Migrants in Matomoros

I met Isaac Bencomo at a coffee shop in El Paso during my stay there last Fall. Both interested in migration and health, we quickly fell into an easy conversation that turned into a friendship.

I noticed first-hand how dedicated Isaac is to his job as a registered nurse, working in pediatric ER on the U.S. side of the border and volunteering with migrants both in El Paso,Texas and Ciudad Juárez, Mexico. He goes beyond the sole act of treating patients, seeking to bring dignity and warmth to people so often treated as less-than by authorities. When I moved back to Montreal, we stayed in touch through his move to San Antonio and his new involvement with migrants in Matamoros in the Rio Grande Valley.
