Lost

Lost

A men’s shelter in Tijuana, Mexico, serves hundreds of meals every morning to men and women migrating to and from the United States. The shelter, Desayunador Salesiano Padre Chava, doubles as a resource center where migrants can obtain basic services like haircuts, medical exams, and help with obtaining official documents lost during their journey.

The Salesians, a religious order founded by St. John Bosco (pictured on the wall), officially run the shelter, but the men who live there and the women who come by and share a meal there do the cooking, serving, and cleaning up. It’s a form of payment that goes beyond money, one that helps them maintain their dignity and pay kindness forward to their fellow man.
