The Church in Bergamo, Italy, and Bogotá, Colombia, have recently joined together through two Catholic foundations to help people who have fallen into drug addiction to recover.
The Santina Foundation, directed by Msgr. Luigi Ginami, a priest of the Diocese of Bergamo, and the Domus Colombia Foundation, part of the Care for Human Dignity ministry of the Archdiocese of Bogotá and headed by Father Jorge Arias, have agreed to work together to combine their efforts.
The first fruit of this collaboration has been the expansion of a home for drug addicts that the Domus Foundation administers in the town of Silvania in the Cundinamarca department of Colombia. The project was blessed May 3.
The expansion will allow 10 more people to be accommodated in addition to the 15 who already reside there.
