United for Colombia is a 501 (c)(3) non-profit organization that helps provide specialized medical care to severely wounded soldiers and civilians in Colombia who have been affected by the country’s armed conflict. UFC has sponsored over 500 medical treatments since founded in 2003.
Our medical and comprehensive rehabilitation programs encompass orthopedic care, reconstructive surgeries, and psychological counseling.
Once rehabilitated, we encourage our beneficiaries to pursue a sport to allow them to rebuild their path to a meaningful life with a purpose. Many of them become runners and hand cyclists. We are proud to even have a beneficiary on the Colombian Paralympic Team!
Through the generous donors in U.S. and Colombia that take part in our fundraising campaigns, we are able to sponsor high-endurance prosthesis, marathon registration/participation fees, sports equipment, travel, accommodations, and incidental costs for our admirable athletes who are living proof that a disability is not an obstacle for great triumph!
