Many people have celebrated the Valentine's Day last week exchanging love cards and letter. Today we want to tell you a story of different letters, full of love - Letters of Reconciliation, a project from Colombia launched by Leonardo Párraga and friends.

We feel proud to be connected to the idea as it was born at the World Summit of Nobel Peace Laureates in Bogotá in February 2017. It happened when two students, Leonardo and Christian had an opportunity to briefly talk with 2014 Nobel Peace Prize Laureate Kailash Satyarthi. The laureate mentioned that we write tons of love letters to those we love on Valentine's Day, while forgetting the people most in need. This planted a seed to start a reconciliation campaign that could reach all corners of Colombia. Leonardo, Cristian and a group of friends came up with the plan to send letters of hope and support to the ex-combatants of the FARC now struggling to find their place and establish a new way of life.

5,000 letters were written and delivered, 4 visits to the FARC encampment were arranged (where more than 500 people have participated).

As Leonardo says: "Our biggest goal is to help society notice that beyond the labels of guerrilla, government, victims, oppressors, we all are citizens, Colombians, human beings. When we come together as the future changemakers of our territory, we can address the main obstacles that limited our development and made us waste the most valuable resources: human lives."

Don't wait for one year more to send your warm words full of love to those who may deeply needing it! Send it now!
