Homeless leave church in Bogota


The more than 80 homeless people who occupied a church in central Bogota this Tuesday decided to leave the church after reaching an agreement with government officials.

Father Dario Echeverry, pastor of the Church of National Hope, was the mediator between the government and the group of homeless, and he reported that officials agreed to postpone the expulsion of the homeless from the area known as El Cartucho and to find them temporary housing.
