Stern Crime - June 2018

Nadege Mazars

One year ago in April 2017, when I heard about the former gang members converted to Christianity, it was something really strange and new for me, something I never thank about. To be honest I came to El Salvador with the idea of no working on the "gang issue". Three months later I came back to El Salvador to discover an unknown world.
This story, first published with Stern Crime here, has been and continue to be more than a reportage. Because I approached and tried to understand the complexity into which El Salvador is caught. And first at all the young people, caught in a war without name. For those who were affiliated to a gang and search to go out, there is few options to change their life. There is no specific public policy, except repression. Only some evangelical churches open their doors. Here comes a part of the story.

El Salvador - Adelante Program with the International Women's Media Foundation

Nadege Mazars

Between March 26 and April 12, I was following the Adelante program of the IWMF. After some days in Mexico to receive a Hostile Environments & Emergency First Aid Training (HEFAT), I was in El Salvador to begin some new stories, at the same time of 6 other female journalists as part of the fellowship. A lot of meetings… A first trip to feel the country and go back in few times. 

A Sunday morning at the time of the mass and near the Metropolitan Cathedral of the Holy Savior, a woman is selling some poster of the Christ and Monsignor Romero, archbishop of San Salvador taht was killed by the military and the beginning of the 1980. He still stays a popular and loved figure of the contemporary Salvador.
