Who are we?
Established in 1997, In Ministry to Children is a Christian charitable foundation providing relief and support for children in Colombia who are at risk through poverty, neglect, abuse or violence.
What do we do?
- Work with communities in marginal locations.
- Identify families most at risk, due to poverty and violence.
- Offer support for the parents:

- help with parenting skills
- Provide essentials for the children:
- assistance with access to education (school uniforms and books)
- psycho-social support
- medical and health checks
- nutrition programme (providing healthy meals)

How do we do it?
Through our partner foundation in Colombia, which shares our Christian ethos, we serve the children and their families through community-based programmes. These are assisted by volunteers and local churches and are overseen by professional Colombian staff, committed to excellence in their work.
