#3021638 - Providing healthcare to improve the quality of life in the community

Annual Goal:$10,000.00
Partner:Colombian Methodist Church

Describe the need affecting the community.

The Health Committee of the Methodist Church in Colombia has been created to provide and support the actions of life and community health. That are undertaken in places where the Colombian Methodist Church (CMC) carries out its ministry and has an active presence. To give coherence to this commitment and socio-pastoral role. We postulate the need for a project of more humane and just society in which the inalienable right to health is a basic and essential need, to be defended and made effective.

How will this Advance project help to address the need?

The specific manner to do real this project is that we are committed from the Health Committee-CMC through the actions of health (supply water, energy) and the construction of a clinic, in the community of Brisas del Mar, municipality of San Onofre, Sucre Department.

Describe the primary goal of the project.


Describe the change you would like to see in the community as a result of this Advance project.

To see communities that worried more about preventing diseases more than curing. And, to develop a will to change their lifestyle to a more healthy one, and because of that they will see their life improved.
