THE CRISIS

12 Apr 2017 description

On 8 April, Colombia suffered its worst disaster in years, when 3 overflowing rivers provoked a massive landslide, burying seven neighbourhoods of the Amazonian town of Mocoa. Authorities recorded 301 deaths so far, but 441 people are still missing as search and rescue teams race against the clock to find survivors. The EU's partner Action Against Hunger (ACF) has long been present in these remote jungles of southern Colombia, supporting populations forcibly displaced by the ongoing conflict, and was immediately able to reach Mocoa’s survivors.
