As well as the devastation of natural disasters, Columbia has been caught in an ongoing conflict for decades, with an estimated 7 million people being displaced from their homes over the last 50 years.  Despite this conflict, thousands of Venezuelans are coming to Columbia to leave behind desperate conditions.  As a result hospitals are running out of medical care and children are in danger of human trafficking.  Save The Children are working with communities and schools affected by the ongoing conflict to ensure child protection and they are also providing support for those coming across the border and working to prevent the exploitation of children.  To find out more please visit:
