You’re needed here in El Salvador.
You’re looking for the best way to help your family. Leaving is not the only option.
Be proud. Be resilient. You can also help them by staying in El Salvador and staying together.
By staying, you give your time and resources to your community, your family, your children – not to someone else far away.
Working together, you can make life better here in El Salvador for you and your children—but only if you stay.
Here are three good reasons to stay in El Salvador:
Your family needs you here.
There are things you can only give your family if you are here. They want to talk to you, ask your advice, and follow your lead. Your children need you to guide them as they grow. They can’t do those things if you are gone.
Your community needs you here.
Plus, your community needs you. Your friends and neighbors need strong, good, hard-working people like you to hold your community together. Your community can be stronger if you stay a part of it.
If you get caught, you’re out of luck.
Because of COVID, the US border is still closed. This means that you could get sent home as soon as you arrive. Don’t risk the journey or the money. Instead, invest in your country and your community. Be there for your family.
Migrating is not the only option. You and your family could get sick, get hurt, or sent home.
Choose to devote your time and resources in the place you love; in the place where people love you.
The community you belong to needs you here. Stay here in El Salvador and help your country grow.
