Description : Anna was living with her mother and her six brothers and sisters and their children on a farm in Antioquia province. Their farm was their livelihood. Members of armed groups constantly harassed Anna’s two brothers to join them and fight as a combatant. They consistently refused and were then threatened with forced recruitment. As the young men continued to avoid the armed group, four men came to the farm, kidnapped their 16 year-old-sister and took her to the mountains. The four of them raped her and brought her back to her village, threatening to kill the family if they reported anything to the city mayor. They were left with no choice but to leave the village without telling anyone, taking only very few belongings. They now live in Medellin and benefit from ICRC ‘s emergency programmes for displaced people. Rape victims in relation to the conflict are all too common in Colombia. The ICRC assists by facilitating their access to health services, including testing for HIV/AIDS and hepatitis, and providing them with psychosocial support as well as covering transport and medicine costs.
