Thanks for being part of Carlos' life!

Carlos Amaya, is one of our beneficiaries touched by your kind heart. He lost his left leg due to a grenade explosion. He was only 7 years old when the accident happened. (More information attached)

Thanks to you he can walk and play like any other kid. He is now 13 years old and he keeps growing, having a healthy and happy life full of wonderful opportunities.

Every year he needs his prosthesis to be repaired or changed. He is a fast growing kid, so his prosthesis must be adjusted to fulfill his new height and weight. 

Please keep being part of Carlos’ life and many other children like him.

We really appreciate your generous support.

Nov 2011-Jan 2012 Newsletter

We hope you had a delightful and happy Holiday Season!

Your kindness is helping to restore the lives of many Colombian war victims, turning their hopes and dreams into vibrant realities. Thanks to your support, United for Colombia was able to provide in 2011 comprehensive medical care to 18 children and 17 servicemen.

Ferson Gutierrez, an 18-year-old boy, is one of these beneficiaries. In February 2011, he was walking with friends and came across a metallic tube. Being curious, he picked it up and without warning, the tube exploded. Ferson lost both legs due to the incident. With your support, Ferson received two technologically advanced legs in the fall of 2011, and he is now walking again.

Please find attached the up-to-date and exciting news-worthy information in our Nov 2011-Jan 2012 Newsletter. United for Colombia would like to keep on sharing with you stories like Jerson’s.

Have a wonderful New Year!

Best wishes,

United for Colombia
