Where Most Needed (Colombia)
Official figures from 2009 indicate that about 46% of Colombians lived below the poverty line and 17% in "extreme poverty". This poverty, along with its past history of guerrilla warfare, has driven the Colombian people to the cities. Squatter villages of thousands and thousands of people have developed outside the larger cities. CFCI Colombia operates several ministries for the people of these villages as well as the impoverished inside the cities of Medellin and Bogota.
