Immigrants to Braid Hair in Exchange for Donations

The initiative emerges due to the increase of needs in the hostels of the city...

The shelter for immigrants of the religious community called "Cielo sin fronteras" (Heaven without Borders) has initiated the project "Tijuana with braids", which seeks to look for support from part of the citizenship to make food and clothing donations, and in return, resident immigrants of the hostel will braid their hair as a way of thanking them.

"Cielo Sin Fronteras" hostel cordially invites you to schedule a visit to its facilities located in Privada Gardenta #9 of Colonia Buena Vista to make a donation and get the hair braided by many of the immigrant women who are in the refuge. They can also be reached at (664) 316 7108 / (664) 589 2082.

This is the hostel of the religious congregation "Cielo sin fronteras."



Although the product needs are many, the shelter has published a list of some of them that are of vital importance.

It is important to emphasize that those who are interested in braiding their hair will have to bring their own combs, hair ties and the style of braiding that they like to be performed.

The girl who appears with braids in the picture of this Tijuana campaign is named Carmen, she's a 23-year-old woman from Haiti who has a 4-year-old son, with whom she crossed the mountains of Nicaragua for three days by eating only biscuits and water, all of this to obtain political asylum in the United States.

It is time to help and join Tijuana with this braids project, visit their official Facebook page for all details.[/p]
