The Luena Foundation (currently in formation) is a non-profit committed to providing critical services to vulnerable children, families and communities worldwide. We strive to continue the legacy of our friend, Luena Troso Vela, by working to change the lives of those children who need it it the very most.

Our Focus Areas

Organizations that focus on providing the critical basic and medical needs of children (food, clean water, shelter, clothing, antibiotics, vaccines, emergency medical treatments and humanitarian medical transfers).
Organizations that focus on children whose childhood experience has been greatly impacted by a life-limiting chronic medical condition (i.e. Down’s, chronic illness, cancer, cerebral palsy)
Organizations that support educational entrepreneurs that are able to create local change within poor and marginalized communities and organizations that seek to provide educational opportunities to girls where they are otherwise disenfranchised by a lack of gender equality.

"At times, our own light goes out and is rekindled by a spark from another person. Each of us has cause to think with deep gratitude of those who have lighted the flame within us."
Albert Schweitzer

 

Projects

WE BELIEVE THAT CHILDREN EVERYWHERE HAVE THE RIGHT TO A HAPPY, HEALTHY AND SAFE CHILDHOOD

Here's how the Luena Foundation is helping to make this dream a reality

The Luena Foundation has made a commitment to help support Asociación Creamos, a non-profit organization whose objective is to address the integral health and well-being of disadvantaged children, women and families living in the  most excluded and isolated communities within the department of Cochabamba, Bolivia.

We are exploring opportunities for the Foundation to help needy children in Angola and their communities who continue to suffer from malnutrition, insufficient sanitation and poor access to a quality education.

We are currently in dialogues with various organizations and local ayuntamientos (town halls) to put money to work to help local Spanish children with life-limiting disabilities.
