Bay-Build is providing shelter within Colombia. We just returned from a needs-finding trip that took us from the Venezuelan immigration crisis in the north, to the reintegration of ex-rebel groups in the south. We explored a country-wide shelter crisis that requires cooperation on an international scale.

Our first project will provide a farm for peaceful rebels. These ex-FARC rebels have given up a life of violent conflict to pursue a life of peaceful agriculture. This is a remarkable story of forgiveness and redemption that spans generations, and is playing out on a national scale in modern-day Colombia.

Our second project will focus on addressing the shelter needs of immigrants from neighboring Venezuela. Colombia has kept its border open, accepting immigrants from a crisis that is big and getting bigger. In a world where borders are closing and fear is rising; Colombia is bravely standing up to open their arms in support of their neighbors. We want to help Colombia do the right thing, by providing shelter where needed.

Come to our fundraiser event, and bring a friend! We'll explain more about what we're building, and we'll layout our vision for the launch of Bay-Build in Colombia.
