Who We Are

We are a Christian foundation with the vision to foster transformation in underdeveloped communities and to empower children in Colombia. We  have been working with vulnerable communities and people in need for more than 25 years, focusing on three main areas: Providing shelter and care for children at high risk, supporting regional actors in development efforts and providing direct material support for homeless people.
 This video gives a short overview of our main activities in Medellín.

What We Do

Our activities are based on Christian values and beliefs. For us, being Jesus‘ hands and feet means providing a refuge for orphans, food to the hungry and joy to the hopeless. Today, we are working in three main areas to serve the most vulnerable within the Colombian society.

Children’s Homes

The children’s homes are the core of our work. At two locations, we are fostering about 50 children from vulnerable backgrounds and assure access to quality education, proper nutrition and both medical and psychological support. Our program has helped more than 300 children to escape the cycle of poverty.


„Whoever welcomes one of these little children in my name welcomes me.“  (Mark 9:37)

Humanitarian Commission

Our ‘Comisión Humanitaria’ organizes regular aid missions in order to supply impoverished communities with the most basic goods and services. We cooperate with the military to bring doctors, nurses, social workers and evangelists, as well as basic goods to least developed communities.


„Bear one another’s burdens, and thereby fulfill the law of Christ.“ (Galatians 6:2)

Bread for Life

Our program ‘Pan para la Vida’ focuses on the needs of homeless people in Medellín. Every other week, a group of volunteers distributes meals and beverages close to the city center of Medellín. If people are open for that, we do also pray with them and aim to find longterm solutions for their conditions.


„Feed the hungry and help those in trouble, than your light will shine…“ (Isaiah 58:10)
