Children's day in Colombia
Posted: 19th May 2013
Colombia: The team in Colombia recently took part in the walk for the right to life on
“Children’s Day” with the children in Fusa where IMC runs its dining room programme . They remembered the local boy who was killed one year ago by a drug addict. Walking with the Child Protection Police and other organisations protecting the rights of children the team wanted to raise the voice of protest against the mistreatment and other difficulties that children face.
On that same day the new “mayor” at the dining room took
up his new post – Esteban Castro. The IMC Director Nancy commented that "God
has great things in store for this boy: he had heart surgery a few years
ago. At his induction ceremony he gave a
presentation of his work plan – he has some great ideas: he has asked his
Pastor if he can talk to the congregation and we are planning a visit to the
Mayor of Fusa and the offices of the Mayor of Bogotá."

Bringing lasting change for the children of Colombia needs people of vision and passion prepared to invest in their lives for the long term, accompany them through their formative years, and encourage them into maturity as young adults who will be part of a better future for all Colombia’s children.
Through our partner foundation in Colombia we…
- Work with communities in marginal locations.
- Identify families most at risk, due to poverty and violence.
- Offer support for the parents.
- Provide essentials for the children.
You can be part of this life-changing challenge!
