Colombia launches “Football and Peace” program

A Football and Peace program was launched on Sunday at the end of the Week for Peace in Colombia .
The program plans to hold championships in different regions affected by civil war and open workshops for those who were enemies in war to talk peacefully.
The Colombian government and the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia (FARC) announced last month that they have reached a final peace agreement to end a half-century-long civil war.
The confrontation between government forces, guerillas and paramilitaries has caused a profound fragmentation of society and a devastating loss of human life.
