The international Christian humanitarian organization World Vision has released a statement demanding that the needs of the immigrants in the caravan, especially the children, be looked after.

World Vision expressed concern over the "health and safety of children and families fleeing the violence in Honduras" and proceeded to "urge that measures are taken to appropriately care for these children while they are on the move."

"Because World Vision works in hundreds of communities in Latin America, we understand the violence and sense of hopelessness that is driving families to leave their homes," stated the organization.

"As Christians, we are called to love and serve the most vulnerable among us, to welcome the stranger, and to show hospitality to those in need (Matthew 25:35)."
