Isabella is a Venezuela Refugee

I want to introduce you to Isabella.

I met Isabella at the CDA School in El Pozon.

We were doing an art project, and her paintings on little wooden sticks stood out from the others.

Her little painting of a giraffe was full of life, as was Isabella.

She went on to paint a jungle scene and more.

As I talked to her, I learned that she was a recent refugee from Venezuela.

She fled with her family to Colombia.

One of 3 mm people who have fled the country, 1 mm of which have landed in Colombia.

The impoverished communities that already existed (El Pozon, Villa Estrella, Las Americas and more ) now have the added challenge of a swelling population of desperate refugees.

So our work is not done.

Thank you so much for your support of our CDA-Conviventia schools in the impoverished communities of EL Pozon, Las Americas, Lucero Alto and Cazuca. You are truely making a difference in these childrens lives, empowering them to break free from the chains of poverty. Where there is human kindness, there is hope.
