When asked about the real purpose of this highly collaborative partnership Katerin Moreno; Community Activist and Secretary of AfrosUnidos, said, "This area and the people who reside here are extremely near and dear to my heart. For the past ten years as an activist, I have accessed the needs and desires of this community, and anytime that organizations like AfrosUnidos and the Secretary of Health seek to provide some form of assistance to the migrant families of Comuna 4, it is greatly appreciated."
The overall objective of AfrosUnidos ways to improve health care access for vulnerable migrants and refugees, support their inclusion and participation, and reduce health inequalities. At its root, the mission of the AfrosUnidos is both medical and moral since it is based on solidarity rather than charity. Furthermore, this partnership serves as a platform for shared voices on the major health issues amongst the migrant families of Moravia.

Assisting their efforts of coping with hunger and malnutrition, allowing them to live nourished and enriched lives. Furthermore, energizing music performances by Afropower Urbano provided fun dance classes to all the residents of the community, allowing a brief respite from their daily stressors.
