Colombia Health Clinic

Amparra Arce Overasoma, age 10, of the Colombian indigenous group Embera Katio, receives nutritional assistance from the Tambo health clinic, which is supported by Catholic Relief Services. Malnutrition is a real and ongoing problem facing some indigenous populations, partially brought on because people can’t rely on corn and other harvested foods due to the violence in Colombia that often destroys their farms or makes it unsafe to plant food.
