United with the Children!

Thanks to the support of “Suma Activos S.A.S.”, we were able to execute the program “Apoyo Escolar” (School Support), benefiting 13 children victims of colombian´s armed conflict.

 

All of the beneficiaries received basic resources for the development of their academic year, including pens, pencils, notebooks, an atlas, dictionaries and a backpack, were some of the school supplies given to the children.

 

Besides, working with the ICBF (Instituto Colombiano de Bienestar Familiar), was executed the Rehabilitation Program, in which we intended to provide medical attention to the beneficiaries. With the support of the institutions Otto Bock, Salud Visual Integral and Orthopraxis, we delivered prosthesis to the children, who due to the war, suffered amputation somewhere in their bodies.

 

We are doing every effort taking account the importance of our labor in the social inclusion and development of the children, supporting education as a basic need, and building confidence for their personal growth, allowing them to dream big and achieve their goals.

 

Keep up with the good will, we truly appreciate your support.

Keeping Hopes Alive!

At age 11, Ramiro was doing agriculture jobs when he accidentally activated a landmine. This explosive device caused the total loss of his vision and severe injuries on his body, particularly on his left hand, in which he lost his fingers.

Since 2012, Ramiro has been receiving comprehensive rehabilitation assistance from United for Colombia. He received a facial prosthesis and prosthetic eye.

His recovery process has been complex due to the severity of his wounds. However, Ramiro keeps studying his secondary education and aspires to be a professional musician.

Thanks to our donor and their constant support, children like Ramiro keep faith to gain the well-being and the recovery they need to continue a joyful and ambitious life.

Thanks for keeping their hopes alive!

Sharing Happy Moments!

On August 3, 2013 United for Colombia enjoyed a lovely moment with their beneficiaries and their families. We got together to share the happiness of our triumphs of living a life of hope and optimism.

Our beneficiaries are now enjoying a better quality of life as well as their families. They recovered their health and independence, securing a brighter future for themselves. These triumphs are thanks to those kindhearted people caring to serve others and make their dreams come true.

Our supporters allow us to reach our goals, the goals of those waiting to walk again. Your deep conviction in supporting our mission makes possible to touch and change the life of many Colombians in need.

Thanks again for your kind hearth!
