In 2018, our 21st year, we have begun a new phase of our humanitarian work. Water access is a critical need for many people around the globe. The Wayuu are an indigenous tribe that inhabit the arid Guajira region in the NE of Colombia and bordering Venezuela. Our team has visited various families and villages of this tribe and have found them in a very dire situation. Due to pervasive drought and very little resources, this tribe is in desperate need. Child mortality is extremely high and their living conditions are very harsh. With the continued support of TOMA's donors, we have purchased a drill designed for use in remote areas and will begin working to establish consistent, clean water sources for people in this region through the drilling of wells.

In 2012 TOMA developed a solar program to provide energy for remote tribal health posts and schools in the Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta. Since then we have installed a total of twelve solar systems for the Kogui, Wiwa, and Arhuaco tribes to power vaccine refrigerators, microscopes, dental compressors, nebulizers and lights.

 This map shows the Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta mountainous region of Colombia and the villages within where TOMA has constructed solar systems.

TOMA’s medical contributions in the Sierra Nevada began in 2008 with two containers of supplies and equipment for two large Arhuaco and Kogui village health centers. We continue to provide lifesaving devices for tribal doctors and healthcare teams throughout the mountains.

Our support for dental care began on our first trip to the tribal villages of the Sierra Nevada in 2008. Dental supplies and equipment are delivered every year to targeted villages. Tribal dentists provide dental care every three months.
