The Fundación Ayuda a la Infancia Hogares BAMBI is working in Medellín, Colombia, offering health and nutritional care, and education, to vulnerable children in the area.

The project has the support of Fundación MAPFRE, and provides care to 35 children between the ages of 3 months and 6 years, offering food, health, and education, as well as spaces for the children to play.

All the activities offered at the center are focused on the personal safety of the children and restitution of their rights. They are carried out by a professional team formed by a doctor, a nurse, a nutritionist, a psychologist, and teachers.

These programs have been designed bearing in mind the socio-economic conditions of the families, with which the team works actively to strengthen the bonding.

The Fundación de Ayuda a la Infancia Hogares Bambi started in 1985 with the creation of the first home in the city of Cali. The model was subsequently copied in the cities of Bogota and Darien, and a few years later, in Medellin. In their more than 30 years of operation, at least 13,000 boys and girls have benefited from its projects.
