The current food crisis, aggravated by war, climate change and the effects of the pandemic have raised the price of food. This affects vulnerable populations, such as children and adolescents to a greater degree and generates diseases such as malnutrition, obesity and anemia.
The panorama is even more complicated for Venezuelan migrants and refugees, who flee their country due to violence, lack of food, medicines and essential services and encounter these same difficulties in the host countries. Many Venezuelan families have adopted at least one strategy to cope with these difficulties and thus pay for their food by borrowing money or reducing expenses in other areas, such as health and education.
For this reason, World Vision supports migrant families by providing CASH to help them cover their food expenses and meet their immediate needs.
