Aid projects in Colombia

Over 500 families in the district of Moravia in Medellin, Colombia lost their homes as a devastating forest fire wreaked havoc in various parts of the country.

Moravia is one of the poorest neighbourhoods of the city and was constructed on what used to be a garbage dump. As a large part of Moravias residents lived in houses made of cardboard, wood, and other unresistant weak materials, there was nothing that constrained the onslaught of the catastrophic forest fire.

On the pictures you will see as Helping Hands aid shipment was distributed through Colombia's National Disaster Department to over 500 families that lost their homes in the forest fire.

The Colombian Air Force with the National Police, Fire fighters, Social services and volunteers were all involved in the distribution of Helping Hands aid shipment.

A heartfelt thank you to all of you who have helped make this project possible.
