Today, February 5th 2021, the dream of 18 families of having a decent home to live in is a reality thanks to the support received through the GlobalGiving platform, which made it possible for us to build the houses for the families.

We also provided family support and training in personal development and strengthening of the culture to the people of Siete Vueltas. 

In Siete Vueltas we achieved the construction of house #100 and we want to continue transforming the lives of many more families living in extreme poverty in Urabá, Antioquia - Colombia. 

We count on your support so that more families can benefit from a safe and dignified home to live in.

Today we have many reasons to celebrate and thank!

The dream of changing the lives of families living in extreme poverty in Urabá, Antioquia - Colombia, is becoming a reality thanks to the support received through the GlobalGiving platform, which has been fundamental for the progress of the project.

The current emergency of COVID - 19 and the strong winter the region has suffered in the past months have diffculted the advancement at our usual pace, but we still have completed significant progress in the building of 18 houses, one of them completely financed with the generous donations made by you.

The construction process is currently completed in about a 30%, all permits have been obtained, and most of the materials have reached the location of the project, adaptation of terrains has also been completed, and in most homes, we have started and significatively advanced with the foundations.

We have also advanced in the accompaniment and training in personal development and strengthening of the culture of the habitants of Siete Vueltas.

We count on your support to continue bulding dreams for Siete Vueltas!

Thanks to the valuable support received through the GLOBAL GIVING platform, we were able to start transforming and improving the living conditions of families in Siete Vueltas, Urabá, that have been seriously affected by both natural disasters and the armed conflict in the territory, and currently face very difficult challenges due to the COVID - 19 emergency. 

Before the emergency, we were able to preselect families in Siete Vueltas that could benefit from the project, through socio - family visits were we could make a housing and financial diagnosis from the particular situation of each home. Later, it was possible to prioritize the 18 families that will effectively benefit, by running our "Social Software" which counts with 8 variables and allows for a very objective process of selection. 

Due to the emergency, advancement on construction had been slow, however significant advancements have been made regarding training processes with the community, especially regarding current biosafety issues and hazards, including training on preventive measures for biological risk of COVID-19, leaving installed capacity and greater self-care awareness, which results of high importance as families will participate by volunteering some of their members on the construction of their own housing solution, and the Government has implemented strict protocols that have to be complied with; there has also been training on caring, preservation and maintenance of their housing solutions over time, through the implementation of the campaign My Home, Safe, Healthy and Sustainable.

Building permits, essential to the construction work, have already been granted by the Municipal Administration of San Juan de Urabá.

Regarding building and construction materials, we have already revised offer of the suppliers, reviewing their compliance with the protocols established by the Apostolate for the purchase of materials, that include the following criteria: quality, experience, response capacity, compliance with third-party subcontracting laws, guarantees, approach with social sense and knowledge of the region. We have also started the construction process of all blocks for the constructions, complying with establish regulations, and determined site of construction in each terrain.

We have also received from other NGOs and private companies donations both in cash and kind, that has allowed us to advance on completing the resources necessary for the completion of the project.

Also, and due to the unprecedented crisis we have been facing globally, and the nature of the economy in the region, family’s income in Siete Vueltas has been deeply affected, we provided 200 families with groceries in order to help the community undertake the current circumstances.
