Palmer’s Blog: Nina Maria Foundation

Author: Leave A Comment

The Nina Maria Foundation is a wonderful organization in Colombia that provides a safe, enriching home and environment for orphans. With the help of grants from LCIF, the orphanage recently opened several workshops that teach valuable skills to help the children follow their dreams toward brighter futures.

I had the pleasure of attending the inauguration of these workshops, which include a screen printing, sewing and computer facility. I even got a crash course in screen printing, and received a gift of the lovely handiwork the children sewed.

Thank you so much to the Lions in Colombia, and to the staff and children at the Nina Maria Foundation, for such an incredible welcome and pleasant tour of the orphanage. It warms my heart to see first-hand how Lions and LCIF are helping children across the globe.
