She was surprised and she said: "it is gratifying how people who do not know the women give their resources to help them out of their problems".
Another woman in the process is Luisa Gaitán, a psychologist, who has carried out a process to overcome the aftermath of violence and displacement. Talks aimed at women, share the pain that's been, share their problems and all look for ways to support and leave behind those hard experiences.
