BACKPACKS FOR HOPE

Every day, thousands of Venezuelans leave behind the country's political and economic crisis that has caused starvation and chaos in their home country. We have seen firsthand that they arrive in Colombia with little or no money and no safe opportunities to earn an income. Most of these refugees are teenagers alone and at risk of being exploited by violent groups, being recruited into gangs, sexually violated and left living or working on the streets.

Please help us as we meet these refugees in their place of need. Our goal is to distribute 500 backpacks filled with personal hygiene items. In addition, we will feed them a nutritious meal which for many will be the only meal for that day. Most importantly we want to distribute hope. We want to share with them that they are not alone. We are asking you to please consider partnering with us in sharing hope.
