Our Name

En 1998, mientras Hernán Bohórquez lideraba un grupo juvenil en el Barrio Minuto de Dios de Bogotá llamado Talitha Kum, una familia muy necesitada entró a la reunión del grupo. Luz Dary López, uno de los líderes, tomó la iniciativa de ayudar a esta familia que vivía en condiciones de pobreza absoluta en una casa improvisada con metal y cartón. El grupo sintió que la mejor forma de poner en práctica el Evangelio era ayudar en forma concreta a esta familia. Mediante los esfuerzos del grupo se logró construir los cimientos de una casa de interés social, realizar los acabados y comprar los muebles que la familia necesitaba. Este fue el primer gran logro de lo que se convertiría en la Fundación Levántate y Anda.

En el 2000, Hernán Bohórquez se trasladó a Estados Unidos, desde donde continuó apoyando la obra del grupo juvenil Talitha Kum. Mediante esfuerzos conjuntos, en el 2006, la obra se convirtió en una organización sin ánimo de lucro en los Estados Unidos con una sucursal en Bogotá, bajo la razón social Rise and Walk Foundation Inc. / Fundación Levante y Anda. Así, desde 1998, cientos de personas se han beneficiado de la generosidad y el trabajo de nuestros benefactores y voluntarios.

Nuestro nombre se inspira en el Evangelio de Marcos 2:1-12. Cuatro personas trajeron un paralítico y, como no podían acercarlo a Jesús por causa de la multitud, hicieron una abertura en el techo por encima de Jesús y bajaron la camilla en la que el hombre se acostaba. Jesús lo sanó al decir “Levántate, toma tu camilla y Anda”. Es nuestra misión ayudar a otros a superar sus dificultades y limitaciones y caminar por su cuenta.
