Immigrants in Houston Help Their Hometown

Carmen Amaya waits for customers in a tourism center’s cafeteria in the El Salvadoran community of Olomega. The center was built with help of former Olomega residents now residing in Houston, Texas. The group has sent over a quarter million dollars to Olomega to help fund projects as varied as computer labs, a Catholic church, a tourism project, water distribution projects and roads for their community.
