The community of Vereda San Luis in Colombia
San Luis is located in the rural area of Puerto Asís, Putumayo, Colombia. Around 70 percent of its population is African descendant that around 40 years ago arrived from the towns of Tumaco, Barbacoa and Cumbitara in Nariño.
After the flooding, which affetced the San Luis, FAO and PAHO, financed by the Central Emergency Response Fund (CERF), agreed to work on the recovery of the community. Technicians of both organizations and of Pastoral Social, worked along with the people of San Luis.
Together they recovered the Health Center and installed a safe water system in both the Health Center and the school’s cafeteria. They also built a community garden to teach people how to recover their own gardens. Homemade water filters where installed in every house to ensure clean water for everyone.
