We serve two of the most vulnerable populations in our country: children with highly complex diseases, the vast majority abandoned by their parents, and elderly people living on the streets of the city of Bogotá. We support programs that ensure that hope is maintained in the hearts of children and grandparents with social commitment.
What do we do
Our reason to be

Comedor María es mi Madre
The Comedor María es mi Madre was born 23 years ago at the initiative of Father Ray Shambach Garcés, founder of the Divine Providence fraternity and mentor of Dr. Fernando Quintero throughout his life project, as a volunteer and as a professional. Father Rodrigo Ospina S. J. and Dr. Quintero began as volunteers for the fraternity, bringing a sandwich and juice from Usaquén to the abandoned grandparents who inhabit the streets of the city center.
Casa de la Esperanza
It is a home for 60 grandparents living on the streets located in the heart of the capital. It was created by Father Ray Schambach as a nursing home, which he remodeled in 2008, later without resources to maintain it, he gave the place to Dr. Fernando Quintero, who currently leads this program aimed at rescuing the dignity of the elderly street dweller.
Misions of Hope
Aware that the needs are not only found in the center of the country, but also prevail in the most remote places of our geography, the foundation periodically accompanies the health brigades organized by different organizations such as the Military Forces, the Arturo Calle Foundations, “Abraza un sueño” and “Manos pintadas de azul” to find and transfer girls and boys who require specialized treatment in the capital. Hand in hand with our strategic allies we will be able to transform their lives.
