Thanks to the kindness of DirecTV, Fondacio was able to be part of a successful vaccination operation on 22 June, in which more than 100 influenza vaccines donated by the telecommunications company were injected into 111 residents of the El Barrero sector and surrounding areas.
Neighbourhood leaders from different boards collaborated with the correct dissemination and reception, in addition to the physical space in which the vaccinator was established, which was the Jesús Pastor chapel, located in Los Cipreses 156-164.
The neighbours were very grateful for the initiative as it was a nice experience and a great contribution to the members of the neighbourhood community who have gone through great challenges in recent times.
Fondacio in Chile since 1980
Fondacio's mission in Chile is to act against the challenges of this time as Christ would do in our place.
The community experience offers spiritual and human growth. In addition, we train the young initiators of continental change ( IFF America ).
Our programs work with children and pre-teens (Biblioteca Los Almendros), disabled (Centro Ocupacional Hortiterapeutico), vulnerable families ( "Un Hogar mas digno", "Jesus Carpintero", "Reciclo", ), people in a street situation ( "Mi Proximo" ) and all people with limited resources.
Fondacio has been operating in Chile since 1980 in its capital Santiago.
There is a Children's Ministry (6 to 12 years old), different fraternities open to people of all ages (Santiago Gospel, Oasis, Sticks of Hope, Center, etc.) and several community groups of Seniors (people over 70 years old). Everyone is invited to participate in different community meetings and retreats during the year.
Ignacio Troncoso is responsible for Fondacio Chile, the second responsible is Consuelo Silva. The other members of the Council are: Paula Vargas, Francisco Ríos, Lisette Catarino, Rafael Arcos and Luis de la Vega.
