“Wineh”, Years of Drought

In the desert of Guajira,  the northernmost part of Colombia, problems linked to severe water scarcity have been growing for half a century, constituting the main trigger for migration in the region. More than 400 families living in this area suffer from drought, its consequences on the availability of natural resources and its impact on health. Forced to migrate to Venezuela to ensure their survival, Wayuu communities always return home due to their commitment to their ancestral heritage.

“Wineh”, Years of Drought, is an IOM Columbia production funded by the IOM Development Fund (IDF).
