CARE is scaling up operations across the region to meet the huge and increasing needs. It is urgently seeking an addition US $45 million to support people both inside Venezuela and in Ecuador, Colombia and Peru over the next three years.

When extreme violence, hunger or climate drives them from their homes, they are the first to be trafficked for sex or child labor; the first to be exploited as tools of war; and the first to lose their childhoods. Meanwhile, they are the last to be fed, the last to be enrolled in school and, too often, the last to be valued.
