A small group of volunteers has made it their mission to help minimize the deaths of migrants crossing the border.

A search-and-rescue group called the Armadillos travels to the U.S.-Mexico border in southern Arizona twice a month to scour the desert for migrants who have become stranded.

In some circumstances, they are contacted by family members of those who have gone missing while attempting to cross into the U.S.

The group consists of about 15 volunteers who hold fundraisers for water, food and other necessities needed to survive in the desert.
