The ‘Bus of Hope’
On the streets of Medellin operates every day of the year, a bus, which in addition to carrying passengers, also brings hope. Its route includes the tenements of Niquitao, Guayaquil and Barrio Triste, where the homeless, those displaced by violence or those who simply have nowhere to go, come in search of refuge.
The bus arrives punctually every morning to the heart of these deprived communities, and it does not leave until each and every child comes out from the most hidden corners of these neighbourhoods. Once on the bus, the children’s smiles light up, their eyes sparkle and their hearts beat, knowing that they will go to the children's centers where they will receive affection and comprehensive care.
