Dr. Fernando Quintero
Team Member

Fernando Quintero was born in Manizales in 1.966, is the 7th of 14th siblings. Since he was young he had to work for the daily sustenance for himself and his family. He left his house when he was 8 years old and for 2 years he lived in the streets of Bogota. As fate, he went to Vichada where he started his middle school.

During two years he worked as a coordinator in a centre for 35 drug-addicted children in Ecuador, where he found the money to start his medical studies at the Javeriana University. After he came back to Bogota he applied to the Javeriana University and won a scholarship for medicine which he had to pay with social work in the libraries and archives.

When he became a doctor, he decided to give his life, career and knowledge to the needy. 

Father Omar Sanchez
Team Member

Padre Omar, as we love to call him, is a man with a big heart and gentle soul. He was a successful lawyer and had moved to New York where he had bright potential but he had the awakening and like the "monk" who sold his Ferrari - Padre Omar decided to do something better. He moved back to Peru and started the Association/Mission in a small room with one kid which now has quickly grown to over 70 kids.

 

His good work is very understated - only visible through the love he gets from the children and hugs he gets from his team of young supporters. He lives at the house with the children and eats with them - 3 meals a day. 

 

He has truly made an invaluable difference in the lives of these children.
