Background Information

Colombia is bordered on the northwest by Panama, on the east by Venezuela and Brazil, and on the southwest by Peru and Ecuador. Through the western half of the country, three Andean ranges run north and south. The eastern half is a low, jungle-covered plain, drained by spurs of the Amazon and Orinoco Rivers, inhabited mostly by isolated tropical-forest Indian tribes. The fertile plateau and valley of the eastern range are the most densely populated parts of the country.

Since 1970 the Federation of Lotteries Colombia, FEDELCO, represents and defends the interests of Public Enterprises that manage the traditional lottery ticket in the country. Por mandato legal, desde hace más de cien años, las utilidades obtenidas en la operación del juego de lotería se han destinado al financiamiento de necesidades sociales. For legal mandate, for more than one hundred years, the profits earned in the operation of the lottery ticket has been earmarked to finance social needs.
Since 1991, in accordance with article 336 of the Constitution, the income from this activity are intended to provide unique resources for the provision of health services in charge of the Departments and the Capital District. Las Loterías son, pues, surtidoras permanentes e insustituibles de recursos para atender esa necesidad pública y social. The Lotteries are therefore surtidoras permanent and irreplaceable resources to address this need and social service.
