Voices of Displacement
"About 3.8 million people – out of a population of 40 million – have been displaced within Colombia by armed conflict and human rights violations..." Statistics like this are shocking if you let them penetrate your soul and face the enormity of human suffering they imply. However, many of us find it hard to put a face with those statistics. I urge you to check out the IDP Voices website and listen to first hand accounts of displacement in Colombia.
