"I am Roger (no real name), I am 10 years old and I live in the boarding school of SUPERARSE,  with other children because I do not have parents, here we all live very happy, we always study, play and eat together, because we do not have much space.

In July we got sick, one day they told us that a lady who prepares food,  could not come to work because she was sick, at the same time some of my friends also felt sick,  I just felt a little headache, but in that same week some doctors came to test us for Coronavirus, they put something in our nose and then the results also scared us, because many of my friends and I had the disease that we see news about every day, other friends who did not have any symptoms, also the result was positive.

Immediately our routines changed, we had to wear masks in all spaces, play with masks and eat very far apart, everything changed very quickly, but also very quickly we returned to normality, thanks to the fact that we followed everything they recommended in 2 weeks,  we were without illness and with a negative result, none of my friends got very ill, only some of us got a little flu.

Now we are very healthy, but we learned better how to take care of ourselves, we cannot leave the boarding school at all and we cannot receive anyone, no one can come to visit us, that makes us sad, but we know that it is necessary to remain healthy."

Like Roger, 35 more children were affected by COVID19, however their age and care, the disease did not affect them seriously and Thank God and they are all well, some of the children were never infected despite living all together, doctors say they may have developed immunity from living together.

¡WITH YOUR HELP we can continue to stay healthy and with all the care we need. DONATE TO THIS PROJECT to protect more children!

COVID-19 continues to expand and the future remains unpredictable, but in SUPERARSE, we continue working so that 50 Colombian children, homeless or who have suffered violence, receive a lot of love, food, education and well-being. Right now, we are doing everything we can to maintain daily operations and give them everything they need, we are also helping families of some of these children who do not have a living.

We know that there is a lot of uncertainty, that we must adapt to our changing reality, that is why now, more than ever, they need us. THEY NEED YOU!

If you can, DONATE NOW, if you cannot donate, help us share this information, this will also mean a lot of help.

At times like this, we remember how interconnected we all are. Thanks for being part of our community. Without you, none of that would have been possible.

These are challenging times for everyone, we hope that you and your family are well and healthy!

During the COVID19 emergency, which we are going through in Colombia and in the world, in the Corporation SUPERARSE, we continue to serve unprotected children and families in Medellin-Colombia, guaranteeing that homeless children remain protected in the boarding school, to children and families who attend daily for food, education and psychological support, we implement different forms of work, reaching them through telephone communication, distributing a weekly market that guarantees that they will not be hungry and sending school activities for children virtually.

We have been in compulsory quarantine for 3 weeks in Colombia and there is still more time to go, most of the families we serve depend on informal work or selling fruits or flowers on the street, they have not been able to go out to work and they are experiencing many difficulties in survive, many do not have a permanent home, they live in temporary lodgings. In SUPERARSE we are doing everything necessary to distribute markets every week, around 700 people have already benefited and we want to continue joining efforts to buy more FOOD every week for poor people in Medellin.

Your support is very important to them, HELP US TO HELP THEM !!!

In SUPERARSE each day we work so that all children who live with us in the boarding school can have a better life. Many of them have suffered sexual abuse, mistreatment of different types, abandonment or are orphans who hope that one day a family will come to welcome them.

TONY, 13 years old (not the real name) has 2 younger siblings, they all live in the boarding school for 2 years, they are very intelligent, tidy, respectful children and they dream of having a family to adopt them. However, we know that in Colombia it will not be easy for this to happen, adoption for children over 10 years of age is less than 5%. Like them, many children will remain in our care until they are of age and can fend for themselves, meanwhile in Overcoming we must give them all the love, tools and education so that they become good and productive men.

With the help of people like you, we will continue to give support to children who, like Tony and his siblings, hardly find a family to adopt them.
CONTRIBUTE TO IMPROVE THE QUALITY OF LIFE OF CHILDREN WITHOUT PARENTS!!!

Thanks to the sponsors who supported us through GlobalGiving, in 2019 we received US $ 5,884 that served us for the welfare of the children served.

The total value invested during 2019, in the boarding school for the welfare of children was $ 1,222,886,778 Colombian pesos equivalent to approximately US $ 405,000.

In the boarding school 76 children benefited during 2019, 13 people worked tirelessly daily to assist them and 7 volunteers who bring all their love and knowledge to make children feel that they are not alone.  The children benefited, having a loving place to live, adequate food and nutrition, education, sports, recreational and cultural activities, clothing, toys, parties and visits to many recreational places in the city, In addition to psychological and social support for them and their families

On December 13 children received the sacrament of baptism and 21 made the first communion of the catholic religion.  In Superarse and in Colombia, the most practiced religion is the Catholic religion, however we respect any other belief or religion that children practice from their families of origin, currently more than 80% of children in boarding school,  practice the Catholic religion and voluntarily they attend the offices when proposed, also the fulfillment of the sacraments is done with the consent of the children and their families.

We are very proud to tell you that 90% of the children approved the school grade, which in Colombia ends in the month of November.

Thank you very much to all of you who linked and still believe in our work so that children in Colombia have a better future.  CAN WE CONTINUE WITH YOUR SUPPORT?
