The Colombian Ombudsman’s office calls for the establishment of a humanitarian corridor with Panama following the death of a child

The Colombian Ombudsman’s office this Monday called for the creation of a humanitarian corridor on the border with Panama following the death of a 14-year-old Cuban minor trying to cross the Darien Gap.

Ombudsman Carlos Camargo has called what is happening in this area, which brings together a huge stream of migrants, a “real tragedy” and reiterated the need to establish a humanitarian route “for a safe sea route” between the governments of the countries.

In this way it is possible “to reduce the risks of transit through the Darien gap for children, adolescents, pregnant women, breastfeeding mothers and the elderly,” reported the Colombian medium Radio Caracol.

According to the Ombudsman, the minor was one of the survivors of the shipwreck of a boat in the Colombian municipality of Necoclí on October 10 when its crew tried to reach Panama. His mother died in the incident.
