Cartagena is the second fastest growing city in the sexual trade of young children in the world after Bangkok. These children are living one of the “World’s worst humanitarian crises” (Unicef Report 2006). Healing Hands of Hope Colombia's goal is to obtain land in the Cartagena area, on which to build small rescue homes with home parents, a school with a library and dining accommodations, recreational facilities, a self-sustaining garden, livestock and the like, in which to raise generations of children in need. Ultimately, this environment will create safe homes for the children, insuring that they are raised in a stable home, with food, clothing, education, psychological counseling and love protecting these children from "sex trafficking". This particular program will also give these women the opportunity to be taught by renown chefs in Cartagena to bake "high-end" products for their restaurants. Teaching the women and paying them for their work helps them provide for their children. The children will then be able to attend school and get an education. Our hope if to stop the cycle of poverty and abuse so prevalent in this region.
