Venezuela Crisis

Once considered one of the most prosperous countries in the region, almost 90% of Venezuela's population now live in poverty. 

Before the global coronavirus outbreak caused countries to close their borders, about 5,000 people were crossing every day from Venezuela into neighbouring countries like Colombia and Brazil. Half of them are children. Some travel alone and others with their families, but all are fleeing life-threatening poverty and insecurity to seek a brighter future. Measures to slow the spread of COVID-19 have made families even more vulnerable, in the region and inside Venezuela, where the monthly minimum salary has fallen to less than $2.50.
