In its first year COLA provided financial support to a Colombian charity called 'Fundacion Salud Talle', which provides welfare to children with cancer and related diseases. COLA's contribution made dreams come true for eight terminal-ill children and made a dramatic difference to the lives of some twenty others suffering from cancer in Bogota.

Since then, COLA has supported a charity in Costa Rica called 'Asociacion Bienestar Social de la Ciudad de Escazu', which provides poor children with education by, not only funding a teacher but also providing clothes and shoes and basic educational equipment, such as books and pencils.

COLA has also funded the provision of classroom equipment for a primary school for disabled children in Aguadulce in Panama - SENADIS, a government organisation to help and integrate people with disabilities. 

COLA continues to identify specific small-scale projects where modest financial contributions can produce maximum benefit. All applicants for funding are asked to submit a proposal explaining how the money will be used and, if accepted, must agree to provide follow-up information in the form of photographs, case histories and videos illustrating its success.
