The Ajo Samaritans is a local humanitarian aid group that works to prevent death in the desert. We are diverse individuals of conscience and faith united to relieve suffering and save lives of people crossing Arizona’s desert. We travel roads and trails of Southern Arizona distributing water and food and providing first aid when necessary. We secure emergency aid and rescue for those in severe distress, and we reinforce migrants’ sense of dignity. By our presence we witness our commitment to human rights for ALL, even the stranger among us.
