WHAT WE DO

A SANCTUARY FOR CHILDREN IN THE MARGINS OF SOCIETY 

CASA WALSINGHAM

Everyone needs a safe haven where they feel secure and wanted. For hundreds of children from the streets and poor barrios of Medellin, Colombia, Casa Walsingham is that haven – a joyful place of fun, faith, culture, sports and yes, learning. For many of our children, Casa Walsingham is the place where they begin to emerge from poverty and to build a future for themselves. Some of these youngsters have gone on to graduate as nurses, engineers or psychologists: one has even become a doctor! Others are not academic, but when they become loving and responsible parents, and ensure that their children have a better start to life, these charities have fulfilled their mission.
