Dia de los Muertos (Day of the Dead) an arousing success!

What a fantastically fun night for all who attended our Day of the Dead Party fundraiser for Amigos Unidos.  We were so fortunate to have Ricardo Gomez from Colombia attend the party and talk about the children and families he has devoted his life to helping.  Amigos Unidos has provided much needed clothing, shoes, and school supplies to Guapi, Colombia for years with Ricardo’s help. He was also instrumental in implementing our “Clean Water Project” that provided filters, supplies and education to the people of Guapi, enabling 70 families to have clean drinking water. The project will continue to expand as donations allow.

Many thanks to all that have supported Amigos Unidos over the years. You have made it possible for this little non-profit to do great things!

Guapi Colombia Receives Clean Water Filters!!


70 families received LifeStraw family filters and started enjoying clean drinking water this week! Thanks to our Clean Water Project team, LifeStraw, and the ongoing humanitarian efforts of Ricardo Gomez in Guapi Colombia, the filters were delivered successfully and the families were educated on the use and maintenance of the filters, as well as personal hygiene and the risks and consequences of drinking contaminated water. Ricardo also received a large community water filter for his school program.
Thank you to everyone that supported our mission and continues to support Amigos Unidos efforts locally and abroad. Hopefully we will be able to continue to expand the Clean Water Project throughout Colombia.

2nd Annual Latin Night was a great success!

Over 70 Amigos Unidos enjoyed an array of wonderful Latin cuisine, brilliant entertainment, and great conversation while they danced the night away on the shores of Lake Maitland!

Donations for the event have made it possible for Amigos Unidos to schedule the delivery of Lifestraw Family Filters to 70 families in Colombia, where clean water has not been available.

Thank you to all for making this amazing opportunity available!

2nd Annual Latin Fiesta to support Amigos Unidos Clean Water Project

2nd Annual Latin Fiesta Night!

All proceeds will benefit our Clean Water Project in Colombia.

A contribution of $80 will provide a family of 5 with clean drinking water for 3 years!

This is possible with our LifeStraw partnership to provide high volume gravity based water purifiers and education for the families in Guapi, one of the poorest areas of Colombia.

Ultralight and portable, the LifeStraw Family filter makes contaminated water safe to drink. Over 13 million households worldwide have used the LifeStraw Family to purify drinking water in communities without access to clean water. This portable water purifier removes waterborne bacteria, parasites, viruses, and microplastics, and reduces turbidity up to 0.02 microns. The LifeStraw Family will purify 4,755 gallons (18,000 liters) of contaminated water into safe drinking water, enough to supply a family of five with for three years.

The hollow fiber membrane removes:

• 99.999999% of bacteria (E. coli)

• 99.999% of parasites (Giardia, Cryptosporidium, etc.)

• 99.999% of microplastics

• 99.999% of viruses (Rotavirus, Hepatitis A, etc.)

Please consider “adopting” a family today!  Donations of any size are greatly appreciated!
