PINCC in El Salvador

The area we are working in, the Dept. of Morazan, was the heartland of some of the most brutal battles during El Salvador's Civil War in the 80's. They were the heroes and Martyrs (FMLN - the Faribundo Marti Liberacion Front) who fought and died to win back their democracy from the brutal CIA-backed military at the time. Many of the women I have interviewed prior to their exam tell of losing fathers, husbands, sons and/or daughters during 'la guerra'.
