Caracoles, Cúcuta, Colombia – Children’s hope project
The project of Caracoles began in 2008 and has been gradually developed.
The Bible says at Proverbs 19:17: “Jehovah lends whoever gives to the poor, and the good he has done he will repay.
Initially, the services of the Church and social aid and in reinforcement of tasks, were carried out outdoors and in emergency shelters until the completion of an own building.
Today, two church services are held each week on Thursday and Sunday afternoons.
Due to poverty, since mid 2013 a free lunch is offered daily from Monday to Friday to children living in the urban settlement area of Caracoles and they are subsequently attended in reinforcement of school work.
The majority of the neighborhood is made up of low-income families, displaced by the country’s violence, and women heads of household.
