Joel, Francisco and I have started a project to help our friends the Perez family this December. They are a family that has been displaced by the war in Colombia for over 10 years now. With your help we've changed their lives for ever.

We collected a one million pesos in donations and we have been helping Justo Manuel better his business and his life. This is an update to his story.
Justo Manuel is a true Colombian hero. He sells bananas downtown. He wakes up every morning at 1:30 a.m., makes breakfast, and starts his 2 hour walk to downtown from his home in Santo Domingo.
