Our guest, Luisa Fernanda Manosalva Alzate from Bogota Columbia spoke about the victims of armed conflict and her work directing the Columbian agency's that will need to assist them.
Luisa has a master degree in Psychosocial Intervention, and helps manage  social programs in Columbia, dealing with the victims of armed conflict.  Columbia is now a peaceful country with Caribbean Sea coastline in South America. It has a population of over 51 million people, but over 14% live on less than the basic essentials and 4% are "in misery".  As well, over 9.2 million people in this country have suffered as the result of years of armed conflict and much of her work is centered on helping teach the institutions in her country how to cope with this group.
She works with Rotary International and the Institute for Peach and Economics to strengthen and support her people.
She was thanked for her talk by President Melanie and given a club banner to take back to the Rotary Club of Bogota.
