Fundacion Integrar de Jenesano

Last Friday, we traveled to a little town named Jenesano, about a 3 hour drive north of Bogota. As part of its humanitarian services, the Church supports a a small organization set up to provide services to severely disabled children/adults. About 75 children/adults participate in this important, but poor facility. The Church's support (a new stove, a fancy saw for the workshop, a sewing machine, etc.) has been very imporant and we went to Jenesano to officially present the Church's contribution. There was a very long tour of the facility (the director made certain we saw every room and heard an account of what it was for), a sort of official ceremony with the signing of documents, photographs, and a fine lunch featuring trucha (trout). The little town of Jenesano is surrounded by beautiful rural mountain scenery. We have attached a couple of photographs.


  1. WOW! What an amazing looking city! And what a great project. It must feel so rewarding to be a part of it all. The church certainly does some great things. Love you - Julie
