Challenge

Last Sunday, January 30, a fire broke out in the community of Mirador de Corinto, Altos de Cazuca. One of the informal settlements with a higher level of need in the municipality of Soacha, bordering Bogota. Affecting more than 36 people according to information from the authorities. In addition to the condition of exclusion suffered by the families living in this area, this community in particular is located right on the border between the two cities (Bogota and Soacha), which makes coordinate

Solution

We hope to follow up judiciously on the solutions that government entities offer to affected families and we will evaluate the cases in which emergency housing may be the most appropriate solution for them, cases in which, if the necessary financing is obtained by housing, approximately 3,000 USD each, we will build the housing almost entirely reducing the damage presented by the fire.

Long-Term Impact

This project has the potential not only to reverse the negative effects generated by the fire that seriously affected these families, but also to generate a transformational impact. This is because we will be able to build houses that will have better material and safety conditions than those in which the affected families were living before the conflagration.
