On Saturday July 21, 2012 The Angeles de Medellin held their own LONDRES Olympics for over 350 children in the mountains.  The Volunteers spent a full day making 8 flags from Great Britain, United States, Canada, Brazil, Germany, Australia, New Zealand and of course COLOMBIA.

Each team had 3 adult Captains, and after 8 different events Brazil and New Zealand tied for 1st place.  The highlight race of all events was the LEAP FROG event where a dust storm was created with hundreds of kids leaping over one another laughing, falling and doing their best to win a medal.

Thanks to Larry Guilford each child from the top 3 teams actually received a medal and the cheers from each country yelling come on Colombia, come on Gran Britiana, go USA made it a wonderful day.

After the Olympics the children enjoyed fruit, candy, cookies and a gift from many people throughout the world that donated money to Los Angelitos de Medellin.

Thank you to all the Volunteers, Children and the good weather for a special day in the mountains of Medellin, Colombia.

Hello everyone from the program ANGELES DE MEDELLIN.  On November 1st, 2011 through the generous donation of an American friend Carmen Mancini, Los Angelitos of Medellin opened a new office in the barrio Regalo de Dios in the city of Bello, Colombia, South America. 

Since November there have been over 300 volunteers from over 23 countries, 20 States in the USA and 3 Canadian Provinces that have volunteered their time and made donations to the children and families of Medellin, Colombia.

Daily, between 40 to 80 children and adults visit the office of the Angeles, learn English, computers, play and learn games, draw and make crafts and play different sports from American softball, soccer and American football.

Without the help and love given by the volunteers I could never do this alone.

I welcome new volunteeers and thank all the volunteers from all over the world for making the Angeles de Medellin program unique, different and special.

Feliz dia con paz y amor en su vida siempre.
