SOS Children’s Villages supports Venezuelan refugees and families in need – donate now!
Due to a deep political, economic and social crisis, Venezuela and its neighbouring countries are experiencing the second largest migration crisis in the world, after Syria. Colombia, the main destination country, hosts more than 1.7 million Venezuelan refugees and migrants and sees thousands of Venezuelans crossing the border every day.
Faced with this situation, we have decided to renew our support to SOS Children’s Villages Colombia through the implementation of a new project which aims at protecting unaccompanied and separated children.
15 March 2021 – 31 March 2022
300 separated and unaccompanied migrant children, 46% of whom are girls, in the localities of Maicao (North East region, bordering Venezuela) and Nariño (further south in the country, at the border with Ecuador).
The main objectives of this new intervention are :
– to protect children,
– to give them access to education and health care
– to reunite them with their families when possible or
– to find alternative care solutions.
