SAMARITANS & NO MORE DEATHS
Photographs by Michael Hyatt
DESCRIPTION & SAMPLE PHOTOS

In 2004 I was invited to photograph the humanitarian work of Samaritans, and then the efforts of the No More Deaths coalition when it formed. Since 2002 Samaritans have provided water, treated severe sprains and other injuries, bandaged blistered feet (life-threatening on a long desert walk), called Border Patrol Search & Rescue units for severely dehydrated persons, offered blankets during cold winter nights, helped non-migrants in distress, and worked to reinforce a sense of human dignity for those less fortunate. No More Deaths is a non-profit coalition of individuals, faith communities, human rights advocates, and grassroots organizations who have come together to work for social justice in the Borderlands. Volunteers hike migrant trails and work to educate the public about the root causes of migration into Arizona. Email Michael for more info.
