SAN DIEGO (KGTV) -- Since they got the call for help a week ago, San Diego Border Dreamers has been working around the clock to set up an emergency medical clinic in Tijuana.

Board Director Milad Torabi says he's getting word migrants have conditions including fevers, rashes, blisters and bad sunburns. 

On a Go Fund Me, they're raising money for basic medical, first aid, and sanitary supplies.

The advocacy group is partnering with two UC San Diego organizations which specialize in this area: Flying Samaritans and the International Health Collective.

They're accepting monetary donations as well as medical supplies.

San Diego Border Dreamers is also seeking doctors, nurses, medical students, acupuncturists, physical therapists and medical translators willing to volunteer their time.
