Venezuela crisis: Five-year-old Ami's story of hunger and health
Five-year-old Ami travelled almost 3,000 kilometres from her home in Venezuela’s Falcón state to the city of Huaquillas, located on Ecuador’s border with Peru. She travelled with her grandmother Nancy and her father Anfernee. Ami and her family entered into the country in early March 2021 via an informal crossing, because they don’t have Ami’s official documents. Her only toy is Mickey Mouse, which her grandmother washed and stitched back together following the long journey.
