Number of people served in 2020: 64,148

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