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!

Aleida keeps smiling!

Aleida is a courageous and gorgeous woman, who keeps smiling despite adversity.

At the young age of 17, Aleida lost her left leg below the knee due to a landmine accident. She was working as a cook with her mom for the fishing community. She went to pick up some coconuts for lunch and stepped on a landmine planted approximately 20 meters (66 feet) from the beach, at Bahia Solano (ranked as one of the top 100 world’s best beaches by CNN)

With the support of United for Colombia, and many generous people, Aleida was able to receive a state-of-the-art left leg prosthesis in 2009. Since then, she has been receiving yearly prosthetic adjustments and change of sockets to guarantee her mobility.

Aleida lives with her mother, sister and two children (7-year-old daughter and 3-year-old boy). She is currently working in a family home, is finishing high school (currently seventh grade), and enjoying her free time dancing and playing with her children.

Jose Inocencio keeps walking!

Jose Inocencio
Jose Inocencio

Remember Jose Inocencio? The boy who lost both legs due to a landmine accident when he was only 12 years old? He is now 15 years old, and he is full of energy and enthusiasm. He adapted really well to his state-of-the-art prostheses, and integrated back into his life satisfactorily. He is going to school, playing soccer with his friend, and dreaming for a brighter future filled of happiness.

Recently, Jose Inocencio traveled to Bogota for his sockets refitting. He requires yearly prosthetic adjustments and change of sockets which will guarantee his mobility. He is growing fast and healthy, and he needs to have prostheses made more often as he grows.

Children and youngsters require prosthetic maintenance every year, depending on the wear and tear. Adjustments and maintenances of the prostheses is a life time need. With your support we can help them keep succeeding.

Thanks for your continuous support.

Sincerely,

United for Colombia
