Out of War
Why Wilfrido Joined Peace Movement
Many people were afraid of Wilfrido. They thought he was in a gang. So Wilfrido dressed up in costumes to show the people what was happening. This drew kids out.
Wilfrido played games with the kids he was helping, such as La Pulga (the flea).
He helped kids such as 11-year-old David cope with the destruction of their homes and death of family when an earthquake struck the coffee bar of Colombia.
What Wilfrido Has Done to Promote Change
He has been threatened about staying in his barrio and making speeches about peace, but he continues to serve UNICEF and other peace movements. He believes he has been saved from "drowning" because he hasn't been forced to join a gang.
