Leave your home, leave your land, leave your only source of income — your farm — or be killed. In the past few decades, nearly 4 million Colombians have been forced from their homes by violence.
Imagine living with only the belongings you were able to carry when you fled your land, how desperately you would wish to go home and get a fresh start. But with practically no way to earn an income, how fast would you lose hope? How would your children cope? How powerless would you feel?
With violence always in the background, rural Colombians also struggle against devastating floods and landslides, lack of clean water and political corruption.
LWR’s works to help victims of violence find empowerment in rebuilding their lives, building income, getting involved in civics and gaining influence in their communities.
With your donations, LWR works to end injustice and human suffering in Colombia.
