Our projects here focus on good nutrition, clean water and helping communities respond to natural disasters.
There are multiple humanitarian crises in Colombia. Climate disasters have a huge impact and the situation in neighbouring Venezuela has caused one of the largest migration flows in the world.
Vulnerable communities in rural areas of the country have faced continuous displacement and confinement due to violence from various armed groups. With recent peace agreements, there is now a need to build stability – particularly in rural areas. This includes better economic development and the integration of ex-militants back into society.
Currently, Colombia is also dealing with a humanitarian emergency linked to the situation in Venezuela. By the end of 2019, 1.63 million people from Venezuela were living in Colombia.
Colombia is also experiencing the impacts of climate change. Natural disasters such as recurring floods are set to worsen the humanitarian crisis in the country.
