Last 18th September, we had a social work day where more than 40 volunteers from CENFOL Antioquia Organization took part on it, as a social service initiative for helping hundreds of families at the Comuna 13. It was held at Villa Laura Social Development Center located in Belencito neighborhood in Medellin.

General medical services, dental prophylaxis, haircut, psychology, garage sales, delivery of food baskets, food and entertaining for the children were the most important activities that these volunteers wanted to deliver to the whole community from this sector of the city.

Children had their own space, and they were able to have fun and learn about children sexual abuse prevention and get tools against this scourge in our city.

It was a time of lots of happiness for both, the volunteers and the ones receiving the benefits, a sensation of common gratitude was in the air during this beautiful work day with the community, in which the Fundación Tiempo de Paz left an imprint to keep on delivering hope to the most vulnerable children.

During children's month we had a workshop that would deeply impact their lives.

There were more than 100 children that could attend the Camp THINK IT TWICE BEFORE ACTING.  We gave them a space in which they could enjoy nature, and let them be themselves, and have fun while learning.  The “los salados” park was the place where it all took place.

Each one was dared to confront their own character, so it could be molded into a better version of it, by understanding the fact that their actions will always have a consequence, and that taking a good decision before a conflict might lead them to be saved from many mistakes today and in the future.

Also, all of them received some snacks and a delicious lunch that filled them up with energy to enjoy this great time.  At the end they received some nice treats so they will never forget this experience.

We wished to give all 100 children of the Foundation a gift and a food basket, and with the reactivation in times of pandemic, we wanted to give them a significant experience and reunion.

We also have the vision to stretch our arms and open a third center in our city.

We give thanks to God, because we know that we give Him our dreams and he gives us back realities...

This Christmas season the Foundation gave the children many joys.

We celebrated Christmas with a field trip to a natural park (Parque Arví), and each child received flasks, tennis shoes, socks, sweatpants and T-shirt.

We delivered food baskets to the families, and shared a wonderful time.

Sara came into the Foundation in January 2020, along with her brothers.

They conform a family of 7, and live together in the city of Medellin.

Their father has been unemployed for several years, and the mother is the only one working.

This situation yields a very constricted and scares life in many ways.

They live in commune 8 of Medellin. Their mother works out of home, and their father stays at home, taking care of Sara and her 4 brothers.

Their father suffers from insomnia, which causes a lot of daily irritability and frustration.

Sara suffers from many fobias, difficulties for learning, and language delays. Also, her nutrition is very precarious.

The Foundation is a safe space for Sara and her brothers.

Their parents are grateful that all of their children (except for the youngest 3 year old daughter) are beneficiaries of the Foundation.

Sara eats greater amounts of food throughout the day, she can now drink milk, which was something they were not being able to afford for many months due to financial scarcity.

All this thanks to the food baskets they are receiving from the Foundation. The youngest daughter is 3 years old, in a stage of growth and development, and is also beneficiary of this assistance.

The parents say: “we entered Sara into the Foundation, we received school kits at the beginning of they year, which meant we didn’t have to run with those costs, which were beyond our budget, and lifted a heavy load from our shoulders, obtaining the tools our children needed for studying.”

The presence of the psychologist and the teachers have helped the girl face some of her fears, such as facing new things and developing friendships outside the family.

We have witnessed progress in her language development, and even though she still faces challenges in the academic area, we have seen commitment and responsibility.

I

I'm from Venezuela, I'm 6 years old and in first grade.

My parents, my brother and I have just arrived from Venezuela.

For now, the financial situation at home is very unstable, my mom works with catalogues, an my dad is a street vendor.

I'm very thankful with the Foundation, because with the food baskets they give us, we have food for 20 days.

We've been a part of the Foundation for two months now, and we love to participate in devotionals, activities with teachers and the attention of the psychologist...

¡We really miss our country and family!

Also, at the beginning of the year they gave us a computer so we don't miss classes.

 ¡Thank you Fundación Tiempo de Paz!
