FAVD wishes to speak on behalf of those who cannot speak for themselves and ensure the rights of all children during their gestation and birth. FAVD holds to the belief that the unborn are people from the moment of conception, as dictated by the biblical principles and the San José pact of 1969 of the OAS in its article 4.1" “Every person has the right to have his life respected. This right will be protected by law, in general, from the moment of conception.” Consequently, we seek to contribute to the strengthening of a culture that holds respect for life, human dignity, and the family as the fundamental axis of a healthy society that honors God.
To be the voice of the most impoverished, instilling hope, providing counsel, job training, education, and preserving life as dictated by biblical principles and the 1969 Organization of American States (OAS) Pact of San José, Article 4.1: "Everyone has the right to have their life respected. This right will be protected by law and, in general, from the moment of conception." The OAS countries signed this pact in order to enforce the agreements reached in 1948 on the rights and duties of man.
FAVD aims to generate an awakening of the Christian church to work as a team, as a country and continent, in the preservation of the lives of thousands of children and women.
Support us in the creation of opportunities for subsistence, personal, spiritual, and community development through counseling and training centers, where mothers and fathers with a weak hope for the future are transformed and cared for with compassionate treatment based on the Bible.
"Speak up for those who cannot speak for themselves, for the rights of all who are destitute."
Proverbs 31:8 (NIV)
Foundation Adonai Vida y Dignidad in the United States is a ministry that provides services and financial help to the CORPORACIÒN ADONAI VIDA Y DIGNIDAD in Latin America.
Corporaciòn Adonai began in 2017 with a small group of volunteers in Medellin, Colombia. In the beginning, it used a seminary building as a center of operations. Now this foundation has its own center of operations. This group of volunteers reached out to women from poor neighborhoods. These women were often found in severe circumstances with few options available to ensure their health and safety. The volunteers of CAVD offered services to children, godly counseling to pregnant women, and encouraged them to make the best choice possible after they were fully informed of all consequences. Free services were provided to all of them, including adoption information and help from the agency and churches.
Because of meager funds and resources, the lack of its own physical plan of operations, and the fact that it was managed by volunteers, Corporaciòn Adonai's work was very difficult, albeit productive. For example, in early 2019, Natalia* learned that she was pregnant. Coupled with a painful history and excessive emotional baggage, she was convinced that an abortion was the only option. However, by God's grace, a volunteer approached her before this decision was finalized. The agency accompanied Natalia through this difficult time, uplifting her in prayer and encouraging perseverance. Eventually, sweet little Saray was born, and she and her mother are grateful for the assistance they received.
