Summary

More than 3 million people in Colombia have been displaced from their homes due to ongoing internal armed conflict. With no money or assets, 35,000 families each month struggle to survive.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

More than three million people in Colombia have been displaced from their homes due to ongoing internal armed conflict in the country. These families, who have little to begin with, are often forced to flee suddenly, leaving most of their possessions behind. They come to new cities, often falling into immediate poverty. With little or no money or assets, thousands of families every month struggle to start anew from scratch.

How will this project solve this problem?

In addition to receiving kits that contain food, health and hygiene products and cooking utensils, families also receive psychosocial support, job placement and training, and other support to help generate income for their families.

Potential Long Term Impact

Your gift of one kit can be the difference between life and death for a displaced family. The kits are distributed by CHF International, who has assisted over 500,000 internally displaced and vulnerable people over the last five years.
