FAN created care centers (first, one in Medellin and more recently in Rionegro) to provide couseling support to child and adolescent victims of sexual and/or intrafamilial abuse.
The Fiambre Foundation aims to improve the life quality of low-income kids, young people and elderly. Fiambre's community children's canteen began as a response to an imperious need of feeding the children of the La Capilla neighborhood, Altos de Cazucá. This neighborhood is located in an area known as “The cord of misery” in the south of Bogotá and, because of its location, its population is not covered by the capital’s social programs. Today we need the help of everyone to be able to support our beneficiaries and their families with groceries during the worldwide conjuncture of COVID-19.
