With over 4 million Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs), Colombia is among the top three countries in the world with the highest rates of internal displacement. Afro-descendants have been one of the communities most affected by Colombia’s internal armed conflict. Seeking security, shelter and a way to make a living, over 7000 afro-Colombians have arrived in Bogota’s neighborhood El Oasis.
