Pope Francis donated $500,000 to Mexico-based projects to help migrant communities as media attention has faded, the Vatican said Saturday.
The funds will be distributed between 27 projects associated with 16 Mexican dioceses and congregations, all of which asked for help to continue providing food, lodging, and basic necessities to those fleeing their home countries through Mexico.
In recent months, thousands of migrants have arrived in Mexico, having travelled more than 4,000 kilometers on foot and with makeshift vehicles from Honduras, El Salvador and Guatemala. Men and women, often with young children, flee poverty and violence, hoping for a better future in the United States. However, the U.S. border remains closed to them, said a press release from Peter's Pence, the organization handling the funds.
Peters Pence's collections are funds earmarked "to provide the Holy Father with the financial means to respond to those who are suffering as a result of war, oppression, natural disaster, and disease," according to its website.
The money is specifically meant to aid the 75,000 migrants who arrived in Mexico in 2018 as part of six caravans, according to a press release from Peter's Pence.

Take them in you bastard....
Obviously the Church isnt hurting for money. Tax em!
Why did the Cardinals pick this man?
This imposter is also an enabler ..
Pope Francis didn’t donate a SINGLE DIME. He stole money that the Faithful contributed to evangelize the world and gave it away to ensure that it is easier to bring socialists, terrorists, gang members and uninvited illegals into America, and make it more attractive to do the same to millions more who will now show up illegally on our doorstep. The Church needs to do more evangelizing to peoples souls... and stop helping them break the laws of America. You want to enjoy the benefits of America? Lets see you do it through the legal path.
how about this asshole? YOU take them in..POS pope.
$500,000 for tickets to Rome?
The only thing theyre escaping from is SOCIALISM.
The only donation he should be making is money to help with transportation to take them back to their native lands.
Its NOT the Pope’s money!
Hmm must be a lot of children at the border....fresh meat.
Maybe I’ll switch to the Episcopal church. What are they doing for muslims/mexicans?
So, uh, faithful Catholics.
You do know that they money you gave to your churches last week are now being funneled into the Muslim cause, don’t you?
You are now supporting terrorism through your churches.
Pope Francis Tear down this wall
No more money on Sunday.
He promised to cover their predilections for sodomy and fellatio.
