Direct Aid for Migrants and Refugees – El Pueblo NOLA

Girl Pride International has committed to making an impact on migrant children in the undocumented community in Village de l’Est, in New Orleans’ Ninth Ward. Cristiane Rosales-Fajardo and Tiane Oliver are the tireless organizers of El Pueblo NOLA who work in the surrounding communities feeding and supporting children in need. They even reunited 140 migrant children who were separated from their families. In addition to the work in New Orleans, we assisted El Pueblo NOLA with its hurricane relief effort in Honduras in the aftermath of Hurricane Eta and Iota, where they had been on the ground with their team in Honduras for weeks distributing food and basic necessities. ⁠These two hurricanes hit Central America two weeks apart, with catastrophic consequences affecting millions of Hondurans. Recently, with the aftermath of Hurricane Ida on the coast of Louisiana, we also aided El Pueblo NOLA with their relief and recovery efforts, both personally and through a community fundraising effort. We were happy to provide for their material needs during these difficult times, and have continued fostering our relationship with them. In fact, we are currently in the process of establishing a Girl Pride chapter in El Pueblo NOLA to support this inspiring and hard-working community!
