Funvini is short for Fundación ¡Vivan Los Niños! and is Let The Children Live’s partner in Medellín. Fr Peter Walters is the Director of Funvini, which has 20 Colombian staff and runs programmes for approximately 550 children and young people who either live or work in the street, or are at high social risk. It is the charity of last resort; it does not give up on its children, no matter how difficult they may be and below it there is no other help available to them. It exists to offer the disposable street-children of Colombia, life; life in all its fullness.
In 2000 Fr Peter met Pope John Paul 11 and asked for his blessing on the work of the charity.
