With support from the Scottish Government, Tearfund are supporting newly migrated families.

Economic and political challenges in Venezuela has led to social and economic collapse. The UN estimates that 3 million Venezuelans have left the country desperate due to hunger and lack of medicines and many of them have gone to nearby Columbia.

The city of Barranquilla on the Caribbean coast has the largest number of Venezuelan migrants in Columbia and more arrive every day, often with nothing.

With support from the Scottish Government's Humanitarian Emergency Fund, Tearfund and local church partner, CORSOC, are supporting newly migrated families with much needed food and basic household items to enable them to store clean water, prepare food and meet their hygiene needs. 500 families (around 3,800 people) are receiving assistance.
