Colombia is a presidential republic located at the northern-most tip of South America. It is the only country on the subcontinent with coasts on both the Pacific and the Atlantic, via the Caribbean sea. Its population is a result of the miscegenation of native Americans, Europeans and Africans. Fundación MAPFRE is working on the development of six projects alongside six local organizations.
