Thank you for being with us since the beginning of this project. We started a bouncy journey and together we managed to give to the families in Los Medios village a chance to a brighter future. And this happened thanks to you, for taking the time to read and understand their story and for deciding to give it a twist. A brighter one.
In Los Medios there are currently 71 families that have returned to their homeland. The community has formed various committees, in charge of the good activity of the school, church, nutrition, law, economic and social issues. The production of panela work better and better and thanks to your generous donations, the manufacturers have professional equipment to work in a safe environment and produce a qualitative 100% natural product. The Los Medios community is currently commercializing panela to the Granada market, the closest municipality, increasing the confidence level in the local economic activity. As the production of panela is the main financial resource that brings income to the families in the village, the purpose is to continuously increase the quality of production and extend the distribution market in other municipalities also to contribute to the community development.
The Los Medios community has come a long way thanks to your support. And it can go further with your help. Today is a special day for us, as Global Giving runs the Bonus Day. Until tonight, at 11:59 pm EST, Global Giving matches each donation with 30%. This means your impact on this families’ lives increases if you send a gift today.
Note: ’A new beginning for 61 families in Colombia’ is part of the Together for Colombia campaign that we developed in order to raise awareness on the social and economic reality of this country and involve the international community in changing it to the better.
