We are a group of students who are trying to raise awareness about the rights of children affected by the Colombian Civil War.

Colombia is a country in South America that has been involved in an ongoing civil war with several communist guerrilla groups (such as FARC and ELN) since 1964. In 2016, FARC signed a peace deal and handed in all their weapons to the UN. However, many other guerrilla groups continue to fight against the Colombian government to this day.

The majority of children in Colombia have been affected by the ongoing war. Over 5,743 children have participated in the war, 3,700 were recruited by FARC alone. More than 161 children have been maimed or killed in the past 3 years, and over 230,000 children have been displaced from their homes. 

Join us in helping the children of Colombia, whose rights have been violated, and lives have been destroyed. Sign this petition to raise awareness, and support non-profit organizations that can help these children. The United Nations have the ability to take action in this civil war. Please help us to promote this petition to make a difference.
