Rehabilitation of Ex-combatants in Colombia

December 9, 2017 - Medellín, Colombia - With the support of PASO Colombia 10 disabled ex-combatants from 3 reincorporation zones in the north of Cauca received lower limb prosthesis and participated in a post-traumatic stress relief workshop held in Medellín from the 3rd to the 9th of December. This comprehensive approach addressing both the physical and emotional consequences of war helps prepare these ex-combatants for a successful reincorporation in which their psychological wellbeing as well as their ability to work is taking care of.

This is a first pilot to be replicated nationally as part of an alliance between The Art of Living, Kminemos Fund, Mahavir Kmina Foundation, The Office of the High Commissioner for Peace, the Confiar Cooperative, and PASO Colombia.
