Migrant Children Fundraiser
June 1st through June 30th, 2021
UCLA Health partnered with UCI and CHOC to coordinate and administer comprehensive health care for as
many as 1,000 unaccompanied migrant children at an emergency-intake site established at the Long Beach
Convention Center. Now until TBD July 2021.
Why: Children deserve an opportunity at life. Operated by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, these
temporary shelters provide food, clothing, education, recreation and medical care for thousands of minor children
from Central American countries.
How: Your UCLA Health nurse Michelle Santizo from committees represented of Professional Development Council
(PDC), Structural Empowerment Committee (SE), and Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion (EDI) will assist children at the
shelter. Help me in raising personal monetary funds to support children's needs whether it be assistance and or
support services, purchases of "search and find books" and or other books children may need.
