Our work in Colombia

By keeping children with families and out of orphanages, we’re committed to strengthening families in Colombia. And when we sustain families, they build stronger communities.

Protecting children and families

Displacement causes a lack of access to life’s essentials, which can lead to issues for children including malnourishment, poor health, and lack of access to education. It's difficult to raise children when you struggle to meet their basic needs.

Family is essential

Decades of research emphasize that family is essential to a child’s physical, psychological, emotional, and spiritual well-being. That’s why our first priority in Colombia is keeping children stable and safe with their family of origin. When that’s not possible, we find local foster families who can provide a loving home.

Your gift strengthens families.

Help support Bethany’s work in Colombia

For families facing displacement – because of economic and political instability in Venezuela – meeting basic needs in a new country can seem impossible. With your gift, we can change that—because families need to stay together.
