In accordance with an analysis of the International Crisis Group, criminal groups take advantage of the needs of vulnerable communities. Through a strategy to win hearts and minds, they offer pantries, school supplies or they can even afford a school.
” Deliveries, which criminal groups promote on social networks, aim to generate greater dependence on individual communities and buy their loyalty from hostile state forces and non-state groups.“Says the organization.
