30 Seniors Receive Dream Trip To See The Ocean For The First Time

March 18, 2019

Their whole lives they'd dreamed of the sea — of walking on the sand to the ocean's edge and taking in its vastness, of wading in its sun-kissed, blue-green waters and breathing in its aroma carried on a cool breeze. It was a lovely dream inspired by stories they'd heard and pictures they'd seen, but it was only a dream until someone listened, and then it was possible.

For more than 30 elders sponsored through Unbound's Antioquia program in Colombia, their dream became real when they boarded a plane in Medellin and traveled to the coastal city of Cartagena to see the ocean. Most of the elders had never been far from their communities in and around the landlocked city of Medellin, so seeing the ocean wasn't something they thought they'd do in their lifetimes.
