THE UNITED FOR FILANDIA FOUNDATION

  



In the year 2005 Jose Jesus Franco had an idea of getting together with a group of friends to form a non-profit organization with the purpose of helping the less fortunate people, especially the children and elderly of this town where he lived almost all his life, Filandia Quindia, Colombia South America. He got in touch with his friends Luis Ovidio Florez, Fernando Arcila, Jair Zapata, Guillermo Urea, Socorro Murillo, Argemiro Aguirre and his daughter Lorena Arango. Everyone agreed and this is how this non-profit The United for Filandia Foundation, Inc. got started.
