We are closely monitoring the status of the recent COVID-19 outbreak. A final decision will be made in May – June on whether we will be canceling our upcoming July mission trip.
How can you help during these uncertain times?
These are uncertain times, but the smiling children of Colombia still need our help. So, how can you help the orphaned and abandoned children at the home in Medellín? We ask that you pray for the physical needs of the home to be continually met, and that the children and staff would remain healthy.
By signing up for iGive and Amazon Smile and choosing The Emiliani Project, you can deliver real money to the children of Colombia. Signing up is easy (just 2 easy steps!), and a portion of every online purchase you make goes to our cause.

Finally, we prayerfully ask that you consider making a donation directly to The Emiliani Project via our website as we continue to build the new children’s home in Caldas, Colombia.
Upcoming Child Sponsorship Program
We are getting closer than ever to opening up our children’s home in Caldas, Colombia! Be on the lookout for our Child Sponsorship Program to begin soon. This program will allow you, your friends, business, class, team, or small group to sponsor boys like the ones in the picture to the right so we can support them in their new home in Caldas.
Fresh Updates from the Home in Caldas!
Windows have been installed in one of our new buildings!
A new set of cement stairs has been constructed leading to the central, pre-existing building on the property.
The road to the home has been improved, with fresh concrete poured to form a complete driveway.
We could not have made this progress without the generous donations from all of our supporters! Thanks to them we are three steps closer to having this home open and available to more kids!
Volunteer Spotlight: Debbie Monroe
This month, we want to start introducing you all to some of our amazing volunteers. We are so thankful for all they do, and we hope to encourage others to join our cause!
Meet Debbie! Debbie first joined The Emiliani Project in 2016 after hearing about it from her husband. Since then, she’s been to Colombia with us four times! Over the years, Debbie has contributed to our teams who built our second bathroom facility in Caldas and painted the new dining facility. Seeing so much progress happen in one week is one of Debbie’s favorite parts of serving with The Emiliani Project. She is excited for the day when kids are able to move into the new home in Caldas. Another one of Debbie’s favorite parts of coming to Colombia with us is playing games with all of the children at the existing home in Bello! Every time she has visited Colombia, Debbie has brought her two young daughters with her. Through coming to serve with The Emiliani Project, Debbie says that her daughters have learned so much about being helpful, making friendships despite language barriers, and being flexible in a new environment.
We are so grateful for Debbie and all she does for The Emiliani Project!
