Humanitarian mission to Colombia

High Clouders - Friday, August 28, 2015

A group of members of the High Cloud Foundation moved from Bogota to San Luis, municipality of Tolima, to provide a humanitarian mission related to health and education.

The mission was to help children of limited economic resources within El Limonar area of Tolima, Also, High Cloud had the objective to help single mothers to which the Foundation has contributed crafts classes, providing them food and clothing donated by families in the United States.

The campaign began at 11 am with a conference led by Miss Paola Cuevas, nursing student, who provided a seminar on: “Healthy living”. During her presentation she explained the following topics:

  • Feeding children.
  • Healthy habits.
  • How to care for our bodies, as families live in the countryside, live in mud and wood houses and lack of potable water.

She instructed children how food is fuel for the body and is the source of energy and nourishment for your body to function properly. She also illustrated to them on conditions and diseases that can arise from poor or inadequate nutrition.

As for healthy habits, the High Clouder Daniela Lozano, dental student, taught the benefits of using the toothbrush and cream to cleanse daily after meals, which prevents decay and ultimate loss tooth.

The mothers took careful note of the explanations given by the lecturers on how to learn to eat well, with little food available to them according to the region where they live, to achieve a healthy life.

After the speeches were given children were provided with a health kit consisting of: toothbrush and toothpaste, toilet paper and talc, a team of notebooks, folders, pencils, erasers, pencil sharpener, colors, black and red pens, plastic school kit and slates for younger children, balls, carts and hats because it is a very hot area.

The single mothers were given some kitchen utensils, food and clothing collected in the United States.

Yasmin Lozano a nurse from the local community, provided a fully equipped first aid kit with the necessary medicines to provide emergency assistance

After the activities, all of the attendees were provided a lunch. Mothers and children were happy, not only with what they learned, but also toys and health and school kits they received.

Below are photographs of the children who are so very grateful to the High Cloud Foundation for all the help we give each year in Colombia.

I not to mention my pals ended up taking note of the excellent tips and hints
found on the website and all of a sudden came up with an awful feeling I
had not expressed respect to the blog owner for those secrets.
Those women appeared to be as a result excited to see all
of them and already have in fact been using these things.
We appreciate you turning out to be so accommodating and for going for this form of helpful things most people are really
wanting to discover. My honest apologies for not saying thanks to you
earlier.
