Funvini is short for Fundación ¡Vivan Los Niños! and is Let The Children Live’s partner in Medellín. Fr Peter Walters is the Director of Funvini, which has 24 Colombian staff and runs programmes for approximately 317 children and young people who either live or work in the street. It is the charity of last resort; it does not give up on its children, no matter how difficult they may be. It exists to offer the disposable street-children of Colombia, life; life in all its fullness.
In 2000 Fr Peter met Pope John Paul 11 and asked for his blessing on the work of the charity.
