Undergrad delivers food in Colombia

Maria Paz Rios delivering food in Colombia

We're proud of Math major Maria Paz Rios for her work in Colombia:

"As part of the Duke for Colombia Campaign, and with the help of Bogotá Police and Red Cross Colombia, I was able to go to Soacha, one of the poorest sectors in Bogotá, and deliver 600 family kits with food and essential supplies to people that hadn't had anything to eat in days.  This aid will support around 3,000 people in Soacha for two weeks!  Thank you for allowing me to pursue this campaign while I was in school, which is when it was really at full steam with fundraising, negotiating local alliances and coordinating logistics."
