People pass along the main street in the slum of Calvario, Cali, Colombia, 5 April 2004. Calvario, a slum right in the centre of the city, is considered the social bottom of Cali society. Poor dwellers recollect the garbage in the near city centre to sell it for recycling, while their children get high by sniffing the shoe glue on the dirty streets of ghetto. The order in Calvario is maintained by the illegal authorities, usually former policemen or army members, who set their own rules. Criminality, drug abuse, unemployment never allow the slum people jump off the misery and stop being the second category citizen within the rigid society of Colombia. Although Christian missionary organizations attempt to provide help, the overall situation does not improve.
