Victoria rents this room in Colombia after fleeing Venezuela with her children and husband — his job as a police officer no longer provided enough to take care of their family.
More than 3 million people have fled Venezuela in recent years to find a way for themselves and their families to survive. Because of economic and social collapse, the average Venezuelan only eats one meal a day, and children are suffering from malnutrition and treatable diseases.* Families arriving in Colombia after fleeing Venezuela need help now.
Make a gift today to Mercy Corps’ Venezuela Refugee Response fund to help Venezuelan migrants and refugees seeking safety and opportunity in Colombia. We are on the border responding to the needs of families who've fled into Colombia, by providing emergency cash to help them purchase food, water, hygiene supplies, and other urgently needed items.
Your gift will help provide lifesaving aid to the thousands of Venezuelan refugees in Colombia. Please give now to help us deliver emergency relief to people around the world.
