Christmas in Medellin

Mission Trip: Celebrating Christmas with the Kids

The Emiliani Project December Mission Trip was a success as ten volunteers traveled to Medellin with Emiliani Project staff to work with the children and help with the construction of the new home.   A major highlight of the trip was the Christmas party hosted by the Emiliani Project, during which each of the children received new shoes courtesy of the Emiliani Project and Shoes for Souls, as well as hand-made gifts which were made by supporters in the States and transported down by the Emiliani Project for the event.
Thanks to the volunteers and many of you, our supporters, the Christmas party was a success, and brought joy to the kids and those working with them.

We are grateful to all the volunteers who traveled to Colombia, as well as all our supporters back in the States who helped make the trip and out work possible.  We pray that God blesses your Christmas abundantly for the charity and generosity you have shown to the children and through your support for the Emiliani Project.We will be leading another Mission Trip in August 2015.

Charitable Giving to The Emiliani Project

As the end of the calendar and tax year approaches, we want to thank all those who have financially supported the Emiliani Project this year.  We are a 501(c)(3) registered charity that ensures every dollar donated is used to directly support the children.  Our work is carried out entirely by volunteers who have a heart for orphaned and abandoned children.

As December comes to a close, there is still time to make donations through our Donate Page, to receive a tax receipt for 2014.  If you are re-evaluating your charitable contributions in 2015, we hope that would would continue to support the Emiliani Project and the vital work we are doing on behalf of the children in Colombia and here in Southern California.
