Gallery: Childhood in the Cauca Mountains in Colombia
In Colombia's Cauca mountains 20% of the population, indigenous and farmers, live in rural communities that have been affected by the conflict between armed groups and government forces for 50 years. Violence, insecurity and constant fear have affected the daily lives of thousands of Colombians who live in this region. The armed conflict has left people psychologically scarred for years. However, access to government-provided mental healthcare in these isolated mountain villages is non-existent.
