55 children and their relatives

Context
Despite the economic growth that Colombia has experienced in recent years, there are still a lot of social strata who continue to live in poverty, facing huge difficulties every day.

CIAI is present in the suburban areas of Bogotá and, together with local partners, promotes educational and healthcare projects. By cooperating with the Fundación Proyecto Unión, CIAI has contributed towards the building of Casa de Los Angeles, a paediatric facility that provides free accommodation for children with severe illnesses and their families. It is one of the few paediatric centres in Colombia that takes care of severe illnesses.

What we aim to achieve
We aim to complete the building of rooms that will accommodate a greater number of children and families. After refurbishing a room dedicated to our late colleague, Rosanna Tampoia, and two rooms dedicated to music therapy and IT, the centre still needs to be completed so as to be able to increase the number of the children and families hosted.

What we do
By cooperating with the Fundación Proyecto Unión, CIAI has contributed to the construction of numerous parts of the centre, including a common area and, more recently, two rooms dedicated to music therapy and IT.
