Title: President, Founder

Location: Hampton, Virginia, United States

Olga M. Crupper, President and Founder at The Human Relief Organizational International, has been recognized by Marquis Who’s Who Top Executives for dedication, achievements, and leadership in humanitarian work and education.

Growing up, Dr. Crupper was inspired by the work of her father, who was an economist and director of an institute of land reform for the indigenous in Guatemala. While visiting the coffee farm he worked on, she would speak to the women on various topics such as birth control, which was frowned upon by the Catholic Church. Through these life experiences, Dr. Crupper quickly learned that not everyone was treated fairly in the world and she wanted to do something to combat that inequality. In 1989, she earned a Bachelor of Education in elementary education and teaching from Liceo Francés in Guatemala City. In addition, she later attained a Master’s degree and Doctor of Philosophy, both in child psychology. Spearheading her professional career, Dr. Crupper worked as a translator of Spanish, French, German, English, Italian and Latin, as well as an interpreter for Kings Daughters Ministries of the Virginia Peninsula, a missionary group dedicated to helping Guatemalan prisoners.

Notably, since 1994, Dr. Crupper has served as the president and founder of the Human Relief Organization International (HRO). Now practicing out of her home in Hampton, Virginia, she has contributed to her native Guatemala, where she is currently helping to establish a dental clinic. Distinguished for her humanitarian efforts, Dr. Crupper received the Award “Exemplary Citizen for the Hard Work and Dedication to the Hispanic Community” from the Hispanic Chamber of Commerce Award in 2018 and 2009 and the “Against All Odds Award” from the African Women Economic Consortium for Achieving Excellence in Technology and Humanitarian Work in 2007. She was also granted the Food Bank of the Virginia Peninsula “Catherine Gale Outreach” Award in 2005, along with the United Nations International Federation for Peace “Ambassador for Peace” Award and New Millennium Renaissance Award in 1999. Attributing her success to God, Dr. Crupper hopes to continue working with the homeless and elderly in the coming years.
