Event: Community and Social Impact Committee at the Nora Sandigo Children’s Foundation
On April 9th, the Community & Social Impact committee organized an event to bring awareness on the issues regarding deportation and on the thousands of American children going into the foster system due to this. They partnered up with Nora Sandigo, a woman who is currently the legal guardian of 1,027 children whose parents have been deported. These are some of the picture of the events as well as the story of one of her children.
“We seek to help spread a message of justice for all.”

Hello! My name is Ritibh Kumar and I’m 15 years old. My parents were deported to India when I was 9 years old. I’m still growing up and I can’t live without my parents. I want to play with my dad like my friends do, but I can’t because they’re not here. I want the U.S. government to reconsider their immigration policies and not separate immigrant families who have no criminal record such as my parents.
Take a moment to put yourself in their shoes. How would you feel if you could no longer see your parents? If you could no longer live as a family?
Unfortunately, that’s the case for the 1,027 children that Nora takes care of, and the many other children that are in the foster system due to the deportation of their parents.
They need your help.
