Venezuelan Refugee Fund

by South American Initiative Vetted since 2018 Top Ranked Effective Nonprofit
Venezuelan Refugee Fund

Summary

Entire families are forced to leave their homes with only what they can carry on their backs. The long journey across the Colombian border has become very common these days. The majority of Venezuelan refugees, who make it into Colombia, are sleeping in refugee camps, unemployed and without enough food. This fund will support Venezuelan refugees. We will work with other organizations in the Colombia-Venezuela border who are committed to providing assistance and support to those in need.

Challenge

Due to hyper-inflation caused by the failing government, many Venezuelans are fleeing the country. According to the Colombian government, one million Venezuelans have entered Colombia and 660,000 have remained. The WFP estimates that 90% of these refugees do not have enough food and medical supplies to survive.

Solution

This fund is helping to provide life-saving and relief efforts to Venezuelan refugees living in refugee camps. In addition, the fund is assisting the communities that are receiving the refugees and helping them through their migration. SAI is committed to providing food, medicine and job training to refugees in need.

Long-Term Impact

South American Initiative and its partners are working diligently to help Venezuelan refugees. SAI is devoted to continuing its effort in helping families transition into their new lives.
