About Friends of Colombia for Social Aid - FOCSA
Carlos Vives supports FOCSA
Recognition to our work...
The Foundation for Deaf Children (ICAL) in Colombia has given FOCSA a medal in excellence for our support to this institution!
Congratulations to all the FOCSA team!
Our mission is to help to improve the lives of the most disadvantaged children in Colombia. We fulfil our mission by donating medical, educational and other vital equipment to hospitals and specialised institutions that treat these children and improve the quality of their lives.
We receive many requests for help from poorly-funded hospitals that assist children in very scarce conditions all over the country. These requests are reviewed by our medical advisors and the help of our Projects committee in London and Bogotá, and we prioritise based on the impact we will have. We not only save the lives of babies and children, but often the mothers' whose lives are in danger. By helping the children, we are contributing to the welfare of the families as well.
After we have donated, we have follow-up visits to ensure the donated equipment is used properly and to have an ongoing dialogue with the institutions and hospitals that received our donations.

Christmas is a time for sharing the wonderful results of our work at Friends of Colombia for Social Aid (FOCSA) with all our friends and supporters.
With your donations we were able to help Colombian children such as these girls that were treated at the Fundación Cardioinfantil in Bogotá, one of our recent projects that benefited from your donations to help underprivileged children in Colombia.
