The humanitarian crisis that affects regions of South America aggravates day by day.
Hundreds of people emigrate from Venezuela seeking life alternatives, whether leaving towards Brazil, whether towards Colombia, Ecuador and Peru.
This reality is determining an unprecedented humanitarian crisis in South America, which demands an immediate action and a response on many levels on the part of the structures of the countries that receive these immigrants.
In Colombia, which experiences a process known as mixed migrations, the Colombians themselves are forced to abandoned localities afflicted by a conflict of interests that sometimes becomes violent.
In 2018, eight missionaries of Fraternidade – International Humanitarian Missions (FIHM), were in the region of Cucuta, Colombia, carrying out actions of support to the Venezuelan immigrants and also in articulation with the other humanitarian agencies present in the region, to render the necessary service.
This is how FIHM has been working attending to the migratory appeal in the bordering city of Cucuta, Colombia, and now returns to its humanitarian action, this time in Bogotá and in the region of Guatavita and more to the North, in the city of Tunja.
The 10 missionaries continue firmly in the local articulations to expand their front of action. At the same time, they conduct several actions in support to the Venezuelans who walk into Colombia.
In addition, play workshops with the techniques of emergency pedagogy are conducted weekly in organizations that carry out attendance to needy families – mostly Venezuelans.
While parents receive psychosocial guidance, the children participate in special activities with the Missionaries of FIHM.
Fraternidade – International Humanitarian Missions (FIHM) has also been attending this humanitarian since 2016, in Brazil, in the cities of Pacaraima and Boa Vista, in the state of Roraima. At the moment, it is the manager of five shelters, two of them Indigenous, in partnership with the UNHCR/UN.
