Over the last year, Colombia has changed in significant ways. After sealing a peace deal with the FARC in November 2016, the implementation of the agreements has begun. For the first time, this year the country can celebrate Christmas without their presence as a guerrilla army. Colombia is most surely at a turning point.
During this month of December, we wish to reflect on the opportunities and challenges for peacebuilding and reconciliation reflected in our own reality – our day-to-day work with communities and human rights defenders on the ground.
As we approach the end of our 15th year in Colombia, we are proud to continue our accompaniments in San José de Apartadó and across the country. We see the best of Colombia and Colombians in the most challenging of circumstances. Please make your tax-deductable donation today and help us secure our work into 2018.
