Es preocupante la situación de solicitantes de asilo en Curazao
La devastadora crisis en Venezuela ha generado el mayor flujo migratorio de este tipo en la historia reciente de América Latina. Pero no todos los que huyen buscando un destino seguro en América tendrán la posibilidad de que se considere debidamente su situación.
Six months after the beginning of our operations in Boa Vista, TSF opened two Emergency Call Centres (TECCs) in the border town of Pacaraima where many Venezuelans arrive daily. The flow continues to grow with about 500 entries on average each day, and peaks of up to 800 entries.
ABOUT THE REPORT
Refugees are uniquely vulnerable. But refugee girls doubly so. 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.
MORE THAN 17 MILLION GIRLS HAVE BEEN DISPLACED AMID THE GLOBAL REFUGEE CRISIS
Children face the risk of abuse, abandonment and exploitation as more Venezuelans leave for neighbouring countries
SOS Children’s Villages has started emergency programmes in two countries directly affected by the situation in Venezuela, but more help is needed to address the needs of children, says Fabiola Flores, International Director of the Latin American and Caribbean Region of SOS Children’s Villages.
Condena abusos, pide acceso para asistencia humanitaria y dispone que se informe de manera continua sobre la crisis
Condemns Abuse; Calls for Aid; Sets Continued Reporting on Crisis
The Venezuelan state is using lethal force with intent to kill against the most vulnerable and socially excluded people in the country. It is violating their rights and treating them like criminals because of the circumstances in which they live, when it should be implementing preventive crime control policies that are in line with international human rights standards, said Amnesty International in a report published today.
QUITO (September 13, 2018) - The international community urgently needs to step up funding and better coordinate their efforts to support hundreds of thousands of refugees from Venezuela, warns aid organization CARE.

About 1.5 million Venezuelans have left their country recently. TSF present since 6 months in Boa Vista, capital of the Brazilian state of Roraima, located near the border, provides assistance to these vulnerable people by allowing them to contact their relatives, often for the first time since their departure, through the use of an IP (Internet Protocol) telephony solution specially designed by TSF and adapted to contexts of humanitarian crises
Ante la problemática de migración forzada de personas venezolanas cruzando fronteras, una de la más grave y de mayor magnitud que haya conocido la región, los Estados de las Américas se reunirán hoy y mañana –3 y 4 de septiembre– en Quito, capital de Ecuador, y también el 5 de septiembre en el marco de la convocatoria de la sesión extraordinaria del Consejo Permanente de la Organización de Estados Americanos en Washington, D.C.
In the face of the issue of the forced migration of Venezuelans across regional borders, one of the most serious and largest-scale cases which the region has ever seen, the states of the Americas will meet today and tomorrow – 3 and 4 September – in the Ecuadorean capital of Quito, and on 5 September for the special session of the Permanent Council of the Organization of American States convened in Washington, D.C.
1.1 Contexto general
The Venezuelan crisis is forcing thousands of people to leave the country. Many of them – including families and unaccompanied children – have made their way to Colombia, where they face atrocious living conditions. Marion Prats, our child protection specialist in humanitarian crises, gives us her impressions after visiting the region.
A 7.3-magnitude earthquake which struck northern Venezuela on Tuesday 21 August is the latest in a string of disasters that have caused nearly 7 per cent of the country’s population to leave in the last two years. Economic and political factors have led to an estimated 2.3 million people leaving their homeland, according to UN figures. Inflation stands at more than 80,000 per cent and four-fifths of Venezuelans now live in poverty.
The situation is tightening for Venezuelans crossing borders to escape the crisis in their country. Ecuador and Peru are introducing passport control and Brazil has deployed troops to stop attacks on Venezuelans from local border town residents.
