In early September Healing Souls training supervisor and co-founder Dr Baltrusch arrived in Bogotá. Several trainings have been scheduled across the country. During her first week in the capital she provided a training in psychotrauma-therapy to the nuns of the convent “Congregación Colombiana Siervas de Cristo Sacerdote.” A sequel of a course held in 2012, the nuns welcomed her with open arms.
We are proud to be able to make a difference across religions which is being reflected by yet another invitation from the “Congregación” - a Christian institution.
Around a week ago, Dr Baltrusch moved on to Medellín where two organizations await her trainings. These are the “Fundación Ximena Rico Llano” - an NGO providing aid for children in need - and at the “Hogar Judith Jaramillo" - a children's home that offers protection and education.
We will keep you posted about the experiences she will have there and continue to wish her a safe journey and way back home.
We are honoured by Prof. Henry Zvi Lothane's decision to follow our invitation to the Board of Patrons.

Malala chose to make a difference. She chose to ‘’be the change that she wishes to see in the world’’, as Gandhi says. She did this by having the courage to speak up and fight for her dream of empowering women through education, despite all the consequences that this can bring. She also chose to make a difference in the way she fights the enemy, not through anger or violence, but through empathy and dialogue.
This seventeen years old girl is an excellent example of impressive maturity and empathy. If we would all follow her example, raise our voice against calamities and fight the opponent through peace, maybe we could bring a social change, maybe we could create a better world where the peace prevails, and maybe, we could avoid the country of the blind where the one eyed man is the king.
