Reconciling the loss of all her children…

06 Aug

Rosalba Belebilla

Rosalba Belebilla lost each of her 5 children one by one sixteen years ago.  She’s alone now.

Rosalba participated in Santa Fe de Antioquia’s reconciliation mural on which survivors and ex-combatants worked side by side.  They designed and constructed a wall depicting the names of Santa Fe de Antioquia victims.  The names on the mural were victims of the conflicts between paramilitaries and guerrillas (and a possible social cleansing by the police).  Rosalba painted 5 names on the wall.  She is still unaware of who or which group killed her children.  The process of creating the mural was very helpful for others but may have left many questions unanswered for Rosalba.
