Refugee crises worldwide are spilling over into distant nations as people are desperate to find safe haven from religious, political, and economic upheaval. Panama is weekly receiving 400-500 immigrants from nearby countries as well as Africa, Asia, and the Middle East. These numbers far exceed the Panamanian government’s capacity to provide for them, and many migrants, especially those from Haiti, end up in one of two refugee centers.
Would you love to serve Haitian migrants in Panama? Join Panamanian Christians as they minister to Haitian refugees in these camps. Proficiency in Creole would be extremely helpful in aiding communication between the Haitian refugees and Panamanians.
