    Description

    Hi Travelers & Volunteers

    We are a Fundaciòn , our objective is to correspond to nature, animals and human beings with respect and a new consciousness of the planet.

    How:
    We welcome and help abandoned dogs and cats, feeding them organically and healing them with local plants.
    We also help children and elderly people with needs in different projects.

    Author of the project: Gloria:

    "Eight years ago I came to spend a vacation to Campoalegre Huila./ Colombia. My heart was throbbing with the beautiful memories of early childhood and the severe contrasts of the current campoalegruna community (disagreement with the harmonious development of Life!).
    The great difficulty children have to grow and the violence towards them and other beings has made me still find myself here between these realities of human contamination and great hope for positive changes through which we have been created all living beings!".
    Gloria R.
