Planet Love Foundation is a non-profit organization, founded in 1994. We provide high quality comprehensive care to children and teenagers who ere born or are born and living with HIV or in AIDS stage who come from low-income families, who have been orphaned or abandoned.

Our goal is to improve the living conditions of children and youth infected or affected by HIV, facilitating their return to the family nucleus and society.

We design and implement support programs for people living with the diagnosis or at risk of infection; we educate and inform the community in general, preventing a greater number of cases.

Our History

Thanks to the work of a group of people, we were born in Bogotá in 1994 under the name of Fundación Dar Amor, Fundamor - Bogotá, to shelter and ensure a dignified death for ten babies infected by HIV, orphans, abandoned and from low-income families.

Between 1995 and 1998, the appearance of antiretroviral drugs allowed us to evolve towards the search for the quality of life of the child population served, as well as the effective exercise of their right to health. An important achievement of these years was the inclusion of medicines in the Mandatory Health Plan - MHP/(POS).

Since then, we have concentrated our efforts on influencing public policies to obtain the antiretroviral drugs and specialized laboratory tests required through the health care provided by the State; we have also worked to achieve correct adherence to treatment by those who live with the diagnosis.

Between 1999 and 2001 we increased our work in prevention,
reducing the myths and taboos generated by the virus in the general population; as well as the fight against ignorance, fear, stigma and discrimination, thus adding to the exercise of the right to education.
Between 2002 and 2005, we expanded our work in awareness-raising and prevention, claiming and demanding the right of every minor to live in community.

Between 2006 and 2013 we focused through different programs developed in the Foundation, to improve aspects such as coverage, inclusion, training and life project. With our "Return Home" program, we strengthened the right to have a family and to live in community.

Currently continuing this process, we continue to work to strengthen the responsibility of families, their accompaniment to the process and promoting a stronger bond of affection, simultaneously prepare children and adolescents for life in society as subjects of rights.

Mission

To improve the living conditions of children and young people infected or affected by HIV/AIDS and their prevention in Colombia.

Vision

We work so that every child born with HIV in Bogotá and neighboring departments, orphans, abandoned or low income, receive comprehensive care in Love Planet and once physically and emotionally stabilized, are returned to their parents, extended family or guardian.

We achieve this by relying on donations from individuals, national and international institutions and companies, in addition to the support of collaborators and volunteers.

We seek efficiency in our administrative and financial processes, without losing sight of the social impact, sustainability and welfare of children and adolescents in their social reality and without neglecting their spiritual development.
