Univision Partnership Expands Humanitarian Relief to Children at U.S.-Mexico Border

Univision Communications Inc. has partnered with a host of philanthropic foundations to reach children at the border who are experiencing violence and seeking refuge, the company announced Wednesday.

Some of the organizations Univision is partnering with include Save the Children, Catholic Charities, Kind and Carecen. In addition, several organization have already given seed money to launch the campaign. At least $850,000 has been pledged  by foundations including the California Endowment, James Irvine Foundation and Marguerite Casey Foundation.

This latest partnership aligns with Univision’s recent coverage of the humanitarian crisis at the U.S.-Mexico border, which also specifically looked at the children affected by it.

Prior to this announcement, the network had established “Estamos Con Los Niños,” or “We Are With the Children,” campaign that made efforts to raise donations from its audiences, individual supporters and philanthropic foundations.

Save the Children will collect donations from Univision audiences by phone, text message and online. Then it will grant those funds to national charities, service providers and organizations.

The campaign is set to begin later this month.
