In 2014, an unprecedented number of children fled violence in Central America. Video images of dusty terrain and children climbing La Bestia illustrate the powerful journey children are willing to endure just to escape. Why would anyone choose to leave their homeland, their communities, their loved ones? It’s a horrible choice people make.
This video highlights this decision and the journey these children make. The work and children of LSS/NCA are specifically highlighted in this film produced by our partners at Lutheran Immigration Refugee Services.
