The remote town of Mocoa was hit by the strongest of water born mud avalanches which claimed the lives of many innocent people. More than 300 families have been affected and many people are still missing and unaccounted for in the remaining aftermath of a powerful mudslide which hit in the early hours of the morning.
The Colombian government have subsidised funds to cover expenses and help rebuild the many homes that have been left in the rubble.
While numerous people have come together to help, much work is still needed to repair the extensive damage that has befallen this small community.
We have already carried out a successfully charity walk from Elephant and Castle to Seven Sisters and helped raise £800 in one journey and £1,500 from Jummah collection at Mosque & Islamic Centre of Brent.
Our aim is to go beyond £5,000 and make a significant contribution to these many affected lives.
