Welcome






Chocó, Colombia is a beautiful place in the northeast of Colombia and it borders with Panamá.

Chocó has coasts on the Pacific Ocean and the Caribbean Sea as well as a thousand rivers.  Aside from the great location of Choco,  the poverty in Chocó affects 67% of the population, therefore, it has been declared in Humanitarian Crisis.  The population of Chocó is 85% Afro Colombian and 15% Indigenous.
                                                                                                
We are concerned about the malnutrition of the Children in Chocó, 
There are 15.000 children suffering from malnutrition there. The lack 
of protein makes their health fragile and it is difficult to learn at school. 

Hunter Nelson, who volunteered at the Marajuera Foundation in Chocó will be walking barefoot to create awareness of the poverty in which children live in Choco, Colombia.  Many children go barefoot because their parents do not have the money to provide them shoes. Join us and Hunter, as he crosses the Pacific Crest Trail from Oregon to Washington State starting on July 27 for 21 days.  He will go to Colombia in late August, to deliver tennis shoes and soccer cleats to the 200 children of the Marajuera Foundation.  $50 will buy a good quality pair of tennis shoes for a child in Choco.  Thank you for your generosity.
