600,000 Wayuu inhabit the northernmost tip of South America, in a desertic area called La Guajira, located in both Colombia and Venezuela. Indigenous in this area have no access to running water or electricity. Climate change is making their land increasingly infertile. These conditions make agriculture and food cultivation hardly possible. Poverty and child mortality are major challenges. According to research by the Colombian channel RCN, 50 Wayuu children under the age of five die each month in La Guajira. The children suffer from malnutrition and actually easily curable diseases.
