Here is more information on Fundepaz NYC:

“It is a non-profit organization legally constituted in the United States (Tax deductible – IRS 501 C (3) Charitable Status), created and led by Father Luis Fernando Echeverri since 2001, in New York. FUNDEPAZ NYC, began promoting social and pastoral projects of the Archdiocese of Santa Fe de Antioquia (Colombia), having as priority the peasants and indigenous displaced by violence, but over the years other projects are being developed in other countries.

We are a group of Latinos with a spirit of solidarity willing to create a Bridge of solidarity from the United States to promote development and change in Colombia, in the Dominican Republic or anywhere in the world where poverty and hunger are the common denominator and so with small projects improve the quality of their lives.”
