What I’ve Learned with Juan José Castellanos Piedrahita

Juan José Castellanos Piedrahita

Juan José tells us about a War Child Holland programme which has been working with a displaced rural indigenous community now living in the town of Quibdó in Chocó.

Through a community reflection on the risks to their children in this non-traditional, peri-urban environment, community members mobilised a traditional structure to help keep their children safe.
