Summary

More than 31 million men, women, and children have left Venezuela. They walk a treacherous path over barren land to the border of Colombia and beyond. As aid agencies establish relief sites along the path of migration NetHope has partnered with them to provide vital connectivity hubs. Connectivity is a lifeline for Venezuelan migrants. Without access to good information, people already in crisis face the risk of exploitation and abuse.
