    Weʼve raised £702 to help people with disabilities to live better lives

    Funded on Saturday, 8th September 2018

    What is crowdfunding?

    Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.

    The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.


    Over just eight days, Alonso, Elena, Liliana, Luke and Chris will be walking the final 180 kilometres of the historic Camino de Santiago pilgrimage route in Spain. It’s going to be an exhausting walk of 22.5 kilometres each day but we hope it will help us to raise much-needed funds for Hoguera, a charity that is close to all of our hearts.

    For people with a disability and their families in Colombia, life can be a constant struggle to access the help they need and gain acceptance. Despite progressive legislation, those with a disability are often perceived as being sick and unable to make a meaningful contribution to society. It’s time that stopped.

    Money raised will be used to further develop diversity and inclusion education courses and workshops to transform the negative images and false beliefs about people with disabilities in Colombia and continue the charity’s work to make equal access to information, health services, education and work opportunities a normal part of life for people with disabilities.

    Please help us make our journey count

    Elena and Alonso have been an integral part of Hoguera from the beginning and Liliana has been a volunteer there for the last six months. Luke and Chris are based in the UK and are keen supporters of the charity’s work.

    About Hoguera

    Founded in 2015, Hoguera is a network, comprised mainly of Colombians and British people of different ethnicities and beliefs, working together for the dignity of people with disabilities and the recognition of their human rights.

    It provides meaningful social inclusion activities, therapeutic programmes, training, volunteering opportunities and support groups for families and carers. It’s work is carried out mainly in the Metropolitan area of Medellín, where volunteers work side by side with people with disabilities and their families and carers to improve access to social support, health, recreation, information, education and work opportunities.

    In the UK, Hoguera promotes an international understanding of the needs of people with disabilities, shares good practice and promotes an international exchange of resources and skills. It also raises funds to continue the vital work in Colombia.

        The mission and approach of Hoguera - listening closely to what people with disabilities are saying and walking alongside them in community and solidarity - is inspiring and important.
