Our history

The CARLOS AND SONIA HAIME FOUNDATION, is born through the philanthropic consistency of the Haime-Gutt family, reflected since the constitution of the Moris and Tila Gutt Foundation in the year 1960, when, through this social entity, with a large donation to the Colombian Red Cross Institution, Moris Gutt and his wife Matilde, “Tila”, constituted the first Colombian Blood Bank, which today stands as the first hemo-center in the Southwest region in the country.

After Mr. Gutt´s death in 1971, Carlos Haime inherited from his father- in-law business and philanthropic issues, getting involved with “Fundación Santa Fé”, (Santa Fe hospital foundation) 30 years ago.  En 1979, through the Moris and Tila Gutt Foundation, he donated the construction of an emergency clinic, “Clínica de Urgencias Moris y Tila Gutt”, in Bogotá, inaugurated in 1993.  In the year 2010, the family donated the expansion of the “Clínica de Urgencias Moris y Tila Gutt” (Moris and Tila Gutt emergency clinic), to cover the demands of a growing city.

In 2006, Dr. Carlos Haime and his wife Mrs. Sonia Gutt created the Carlos and Sonia Haime Foundation to continue the philanthropic work of the family.  This non-profit organization which supports integral programs to vulnerable populations is directed by Daniel Haime, who reflects in his parameters the passion and commitment of his parents in benefit of the most needed communities.
