Humanitarian Commission

Sowers of Peace

We are a team of volunteers who visit poor communities all over Colombia. In our aid missions  we bring health and hope to people who have lost it.

The Commissions of our Brigades

Through the health brigades, with their various commissions, we pay specific attention to different areas of human development. We  provide humanitarian and Christian values to orphans, widows, those who have been displaced, and people who have suffered exposure to violence in Colombia. The purpose of these missions is to produce a transformation that positively affects each community and thus the nation.

Medical Aid

Every mission includes a team of professional doctors, nurses and dentists. Using schools or churches, they build temporary treatment centers where they examine as many people as possible and hand out medications.

Bringing Hope

We believe that faith in Jesus Christ changes lives. As a result of this, we bring pastors and missionaries onto the field who explain the basics of the gospel. In some of our former brigades, we have planted churches which have continued to grow. 

Lasting Impact

Along with medical care and church planting, you will find experts in farming and sustainability  in our teams who work with the locals, teaching them how to establish more independent and efficient farming systems. In past missions we’ve also dug wells to improve water supply.

Kids Ministry

We know that children are the future of Colombia and that they can ultimately be the ones leading positive change in their communities. Therefore, every mission includes programs for kids centered around biblical values and group games.

Places We Serve

During our missions, we provide free, personalized attention to people in need so that we can bring about a transformation that will have a positive effect on the community and, in turn, the country. These outreaches focus on underdeveloped communities and victims of the armed conflict. We encourage those affected by the armed conflict to make a covenant for peace instead of violence and to forgive the people who have caused them to suffer. We serve in five regions of Colombia which have specific needs.

Cordoba

In Cordoba, many people have been displaced due to armed conflicts. There is no portable water, a lack of energy and a weak economy.

La Guajira

La Guajira is a desert region which recieves little rain. The indigenous Wayuu people are plagued by starvation and various diseases. 

Antioquia

The coastal region of Antioquia has been victim of armed conflicts and violence. Many of the people are displaced and trapped in poverty.

Choco

Displacement due to armed conflicts here leads to extreme poverty. There is little access to education, no employment opportunities, and countless orphans.

Amazonas

In the scarcely populated Colombian piece of the Amazon rain forest, many communities are underdeveloped and cannot attain healthcare.

Previous Expeditions

ALTA GUAJIRA

With a team of 30 volunteers from Sweden, Germany, Ecuador, USA, and Colombia, we served 700 people over the span of five days in the desert of high Guajira.

URÉ

Working alongside a large Volunteer group from Sweden, we met the needs of the people of Uré. For the difficult safety situation the police escorted us throughout the whole mission.

Our Team

The individuals taking part in our brigades are all professionals who volunteer their time and money to work alongside us. They pay for the cost of their transportation and food during the missions. Behind the scenes, our coordinator Silia leads a small team of people who work full time sorting donations, making contact with locals, and preparing the expeditions.
