Violence in Buenaventura
As a result of the peace process, there has been in a decrease in the number of clashes between armed groups, but civilians continue to be caught up in violence as criminal organisations fight for control of territory.

The population is exposed to murder, forced displacement, extortion, sexual violence and confinement.

In 2016, our teams focused on the urban areas of Tumaco and Buenaventura. We offered psychological support to people affected by violence exercised in the context of organised crime and by armed groups that have arisen in the current post-conflict situation.

Teams also provided comprehensive care for victims of sexual violence.
