We are so thankful for your wonderful support

Dear Friends,

During the past few months, you chose to make a difference for children and families in crisis due to the economic impacts of covid-19 by donating to our emergency food assistance project for the communities of El Pozon, Las Americas, Cazuca and Lucero Alto, Colombia. It is because of your support that we were able to deliver critical food parcels to 200 families who had lost their only source of income due to the pandemic. With your support, together we brought hope and support to these communities when they needed it the most.

This past week our project reached full funding, meaning that your generous donations covered 100% of the costs of the outreach. We are so thankful to have friends like you that are walking with us and making it possible to deliver these important programs.

We have also just launched a campaign to help our schools and students, as well as ongoing needs for the families in these communities. You can read more about our new project on GlobalGiving at:

We wish for you a wonderful summer filled with many blessings.

Humanitarian relief arrives in Certegui, Choco, Colombia

Bringing Hope to the Children
Bringing Hope to the Children

Dear Friends,

This past weekend the Conviventia humanitarian relief team arrived in the Choco region of Colombia. We are excited to share with you some of the pictures, videos and impacts of your wonderful support for our outreach to families and individuals affected by flooding and mudslides in these communities.

Our first stop was the town of Cértegui, and the team was very busy yesterday (Saturday) delivering general medical services, counseling and donations of basic needs items to 400 people needing assistance. Today the team continues there, and will be providing medical services to Indians from the Embera tribe who have traveled between 3 and 6 hours to access these services, as they have none available in their villages.

We hope you enjoy these updates, and are so blessed to have your support. Thank you for your kind and generous hearts.

 

Sincerely,

the Conviventia Team

Emergency relief arriving to SIPI, Colombia

On October 5, 2018 the San Agustin River flowed out of its banks and into the homes of families living in Sipi, Choco, Colombia. The quickly rising river poured into homes and businesses. Crops were destroyed by the massive force of the flood waters. Eventually the rains subsided, and the water receded. But for many families it was too late. Over 250 families lost all their belongings, with many also losing their homes.

But with the amazing support of you, our generous donors, we are bringing medical care, basic needs packages and most importantly HOPE to the families impacted by this tragedy. Working through the National unity for disaster risk management (UNGRD), The Colombian Family Welfare Institute ICBF (regional Chocó) and The Comprehensive Professional Association for the Development of Chocó (ASOPRIDECHO), together we have contributed to the initial humanitarian aid necessary for these families to cope with the impacts of the flooding. To date, 190 people have been assisted through these efforts, the vast majority of indigenous population. They received general medicine, food assistance, clothing and psychosocial support.

The inhabitants in and around the municipality of Sipi have not yet recovered from so devastating a flood, and your generosity means that we are able to continue to support the recovery in the area. Because the area is remote, and their still exists some level of conflict, Conviventia has joined with the National Army to develop a one-week mission toward the month of June which will increase the scope of the efforts. The rainy season continues, and flooding continues to affect several precincts around Sipi. For this mission trip, Conviventia will mobilize teams of health practitioners and humanitarian assistance personnel, who will provide primary medical and dental care, and channel aid to the victims in the area of Sipi and Choco. The team will deliver non-perishable food, water, personal care and hygiene products, medicines and more to those impacted by the flooding. We will also provide psycho-social support to those in need.

We cannot thank you enough for making all this possible. We will send you updates in a few months when the June outreach trip occurs. On behalf of the many families in Sipi and the Choco region, thank you for your generous hearts.
