About us

14976761_1475488545814527_2812300908939147147_oWe are a non-profit corporation formed by a group of friends united by the desire to bring relief through our possibilities the pain and poverty of children in our homelands.
Our objectives are aimed at raising funds for charities that work to improve health conditions and education of needy children in Latin America.

Because most of our volunteers are from Cartagena, we have focused much of our efforts to aid the Napoleon Franco Pareja Children’s Hospital, also known as the “Children’s House”. Its history dates back to 1940 and today remains one of the few children’s hospitals where nearly 8 million poor people from the Caribbean coast of Colombia can go to.

Our sponsors and guests are becoming more numerous and diverse. Originally most were born in Cartagena, now many are from all over Colombia, and nationalities of south and north America. This is why your contribution will have more impact.
Below you will find the list of our board and volunteers.
