Venezuela

Number of people served: 11,337

The ongoing humanitarian crisis in Venezuela has left thousands of people without access to food, education, health care, and the ability to make a living. As many Venezuelans flee to neighbouring countries, some remain in the country, where the economic and societal violence continues. An estimated five thousand people flee the country each day.

Our work in Venezuela

As the Venezuelan humanitarian crisis continues, JRS Venezuela recognises the need for integrated interventions that combine social and humanitarian solutions. As part of this, JRS Venezuela focuses its programmes on building social cohesion and communal trust.
