Trustee Antonia Impressed by Luz y Vida Children's Home in Bogota

Children of Colombia Trustee Antonia Bonilla was very impressed by her first visit to the Luz y Vida children's home in Bogota, Colombia last month.

"I visited the orphanage and met several staff members as well as (founder and director) Hermana Valeriana.

"I was so moved with the incredible work of the foundation, the love and attention that the children receive. They are cared for by committed professionals: nurses, social workers, doctors, physiotherapists, dentist, nutritionists, and others.

"The cleanliness and organisation of the operation is remarkable - the children could not be in a better place"

Children of Colombia has been supporting Hogares Luz y Vida since 2002. Hogares Luz y Vida cares for very sick, poor and abandoned children who have nowhere else to go for health care, love and support. Read more on our Luz y Vida page.
