Mi Sangre Foundation was created in response to Colombia's needs in the treatment of landmine victims by renowned singer-songwriter and peace ambassador Juanes - its leader - inspired by the song "Fijate bien" (“Watch Closely”).
The foundation developed two action lines that are being implemented in the departments of Antioquia, Meta and
Bolivar: psychosocial support for landmine victims and socioeconomic reintegration.
The German embassy is the first donor wanting to invest in the Foundation. As a tribute to Mi Sangre's founder and his social commitment, Medellin's municipality created a park named “Parque Juanes de la Paz” (Juanes Peace Park).
Mi Sangre developed the first project to apply a differentiated approach to boys, girls, and teenage landmine victims called “Plan Hermano” (Brother Plan). This first approach would build the foundations of what would later become the program “Educacion para la Paz” (Education for Peace program), a testimony of the creative and transformative power in children.
