Make a Difference in the Lives of Panamanian Children

While in Panama City there was celebration in Colon the residents deal with moments of great dangers and tension. The 500 soldiers were in Colon under the command of Colonel Torres. The colonel got angry and threatened to kill every man, either Panamanian or foreign that opposed the transfer of his troops to the city of Panama.

Finally the ship “Orinoco”  and the 500 Colombian soldiers left and it was when Juan Antonio Henriquez, a member of the Revolutionary Council of Colon sent a telegram to Panama : “Only now, 7:30 pm can be said that Panama’s independence is assured.”

All these events occurred November 5, 1903, which are commemorated on this date.
