Fundacion MAPFRE collaborates with the Foundation for the Support of Abandoned Children (FANA) in Colombia, by providing a proper diet to 87 children who live in the center run by the organization.

The beneficiaries are children, ranging from newborns to 2 years old, who find themselves in situations which violate their rights, be it due to abandonment, mistreatment, abuse or neglect and who now live under the protection of FANA.

Fundación MAPFRE gives financial support to provide the children with milk and the necessary nutritional supplements to enable them to grow up strong and fit.

The objective is to guarantee the provision of a high quality diet so that the children can maintain or improve their growth standards.

The final aim of the project is to ensure that the children grow up in favorable conditions which will foster their physical and emotional rehabilitation, and at the same time, favor their development, according to their specific needs.

FANA began in 1971, offering shelter, nutritional care and quality early education to abandoned boys and girls, thus helping to resolve their vulnerable situation and to restore their rights. FANA’s goal is to work for the children who need help, their families and the community, improving their quality of life and ensuring their proper development.
