Del horror a la esperanza
This study, available only in Spanish, explores the benefits and results achieved by a CRS peacebuilding program in Acapulco, Mexico. The program has been implemented by the Acapulco Archdiocese since 2011, following a methodology developed by Caritas Colombia and supported by CRS. The program was designed to apply different trauma healing strategies for victims of violence in Acapulco, one of the most violent cities in Mexico. The study shows how beneficiaries experienced psychosocial transformation and healing through free services provided by peacebuilding promoters, allowing the cycle of violence to be broken.
