A group of Mexican women, “Las Patronas,” are helping migrants on their journey north. The BBC’s Will Grant explains:

That simple, instinctive act of kindness by the young girls was to lead to the creation of Las Patronas, a charitable organisation which has helped tens of thousands of Central American migrants over the past two decades and which was awarded Mexico’s most prestigious human rights prize last year.
