Comuna 13

Comuna 13 is one of the 16 comunas of Medellin. A comuna is basically equivalent to a district; it is just a division of this beautiful city.

Comuna 13 is special because it was born with a lot of problems that the government neglected to take care of for a long time.

We had a lot of violence around this area, but now thanks to some investments from the goverment, but mostly thanks to people in the community, the place has changed for good. This is a place with a million colors and people that will make you feel like that you are part of this community.

Comuna 13 is a magical place that provokes many emotions, from which those who visit can learn many things, such as how to work alongside others to make dreams a reality and overcome daunting problems even without sufficient resources. Comuna 13 endured a lot of violence for many years; however, thanks to the fight put up by our community, it has experienced many positive changes and has since been able to leave the violence in the past. Currently, tourism has taken off in comuna 13, creating a limitless number of possibilities for everyone in the community.

This is the place where we work mostly. Be part of this.


Oral Hygiene for kids in comuna 13 Medellin

We executed this project in September of 2019. It was developed in comuna 13 where, believe it or not, some children do not have access to dental care. The main idea was that 210 children were given products, such as toothbrushes and floss, that would help their oral hygiene.

School uniforms for children of Comuna 13

Thanks to the donation of uniforms by Stephanie Miele and her husband Mark Fitzpatrick, two foreigners committed to helping this community, it was possible for 20 children to have new uniforms that they are required to wear to school.
