Welcome to Foundation La Vecina
“There he lies in the dark, below a statue on a busy square in the centre of Cartagena, a street-kid, at the most, 6 years old. Once in a while, the headlights of cars passing by shine on his face. Nobody stops to help him.” That´s the image that made a huge impression on Nathalie Rietman. These children need urgent help and that`s exactly why Nathalie founded the Dutch foundation in 2005.
Foundation La Vecina helps underprivileged children in the Colombian city of Cartagena, providing them with education and support so that they will have a better future.
