As part of his birthday celebrations, our member Nico Arciniegas organized a fundraising campaign to help 50 pregnant women, age 12 to 35, meet the new challenges. These mothers received a breast-feeding workshop from Jenni Moreno, of the Gestando Juntos organization. They also attended a talk on sexual abuse given by the Valientes Colombia group. After both chats, the women received an ecological diaper, food pantries and baby clothing donated by Boboli Fashion. We’d like to thank Nico and all of those who made this delivery possible!
Two weeks ago, we delivered personal hygiene kits to Venezuelans passing through the Chusacá tollbooth. Today we returned to deliver breakfast, face masks, antibacterial gel and petroleum jelly. The walk has left blisters on their feet and chapped lips, due to extreme temperature changes they have broken lips. We’d like to thank Camilo Pardos and Anabella Penzini for joining us and helping us.
Every day, migrants escaping Venezuela to look for a better life pass through the Chusacá Passage, in the border with Colombia. Many of them stay in Colombia, others continue walking towards Peru and Ecuador. Today we delivered cookies, socks, facemasks, antibacterial cream, wet wipes and soap. We’re making a difference, Hand in Hand!
Thanks to your donations and those of partner companies as well as allies, we have helped more than a million people during the COVID-19 pandemic. We won’t stop!
We’ve delivered food packages to those who lost their jobs or saw their income diminish. We donated COVID-19 protection kits to all health workers in the frontlines. We accompanied elders with no one to care for them. We are always on the lookout for new humanitarian volunteers to join our ranks!
Your donation will allow us to continue helping those in need.

CADENA International has joined forces with Save the Children Colombia in an effort to revisit the Colombian-Venezuelan border in the city of Arauca to help thousands of Venezuelan migrants living in deteriorating conditions. The crisis in Venezuela has led hundreds of thousands of children, young adults, families, and the elderly to flee the country in hopes of finding a safe place to live.
We need your help today to bring water filters, solar lamps, and resiliency books to children happen on July 24th. Your donations will go directly in providing thousands with humanitarian aid and will give back to those suffering during these critical times.
