Colombia needs your help now! Support our COVID19 Special Appeal!
A very big thank you to all our friends who have already donated helping us raise over £10,000!
But with your help we can do more to help Colombia!
Please join us to help mitigate the impact of COVID19 on the most vulnerable parts of the population in Colombia. We are focusing our relief efforts to donate Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) to key hospitals located in the cities most impacted by COVID19 in Colombia.
Every PPE kit we are donating contains:
2 N95 face masks
2 safety goggles
30 antifluid coveralls
30 nitrile gloves
30 over shoes
For every £250 we raise, we can protect those who are saving lives by providing PPE kits for 30 days for front line workers in these severely affected hospitals through Colombia Cuida a Colombia (CCC), an alliance of multiple people, organisations, institutions, charities and corporations in Colombia.
With your support, we can all contribute to save lives that desperately need your help in Colombia.
Please donate now. Every contribution helps!

About Friends of Colombia for Social Aid - FOCSA
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.
