Completed Project

The Bambi Homes Foundation for Child Support offers comprehensive care to 35 boys and girls under the age of six who are at risk of social exclusion, giving them health care, food, recreation and affection.

The Bambi Homes Foundation for Child Support carries out this project, with the support of Fundación MAPFRE, with the aim of giving comprehensive protection to very young children in the city of Medellín. Bambi Homes care for 35 children aged up to six who are at risk of marginalization through having suffered some type of neglect, malnutrition or homelessness.

Bambi Homes has a multidisciplinary team comprising a doctor, a nutritionist, social workers, a psychologist, an educator, nursing and teaching assistants, who together perform comprehensive work aimed at the children’s recovery and their healthy development, preventing any further harm.

The work is carried out by joining forces with their families, the State and society, through institutional care. The protection of the children is taken on at a comprehensive level, giving them health care, education, food, recreation and affection. In general, the centers fulfill the function of the family until the multidisciplinary team and the children’s own families feel they are ready to return home.

The Bambi Homes Foundation for Child Support began in 1985 with the first home being set up in the city of Cali. Later, the model was reproduced in the cities of Bogotá and Darién and a few years later in Medellín. In the more than 30 years of operation of  the Foundation, more than 13,000 children have benefited through its projects.
