Make Love Not War: Group of Young Moms Raise Support for FARC Newborns (S)

A group of young Moms from Bogot√° and Cali joined forces to support demobilized FARC women who’ve given birth or are about to.¬†“Raising Peace,” as the project is known, seeks to provide each FARC mom (or soon-to-be-mom) with everything necessary for their newborns in the 27 zones where guerrillas are concentrating as they transition to civilian life.

Data from the Ombudsman’s Office indicate that there are some 300 pregnant guerrilla fighters. About 75 babies have been born in recent months.

To support this campaign, please make a deposit to the Jera Foundation, account 001985993, Banco del Occidente; or to call 313 3778830, in Bogota, and 315 3629222, in Cali. Or write to criandolapaz@gmail. com.El Tiempo
