With over 2.6 million refugees and migrants outside Venezuela, Latin America is experiencing the biggest exodus in its history. The outflow of people keeps increasing, while national capacities are increasingly overstretched.
In this context, several Governments seek political solutions, international solidarity and a robust well-coordinated and comprehensive regional approach to steer the operational response in support of refugees and migrants from Venezuela.
This revised Emergency Appeal seeks a total of some 4.89 million Swiss francs to enable the IFRC to support the Colombian Red Cross Society (CRCS) to deliver assistance and support to 120,000 people. This 16-month operation focuses on supporting migrants in the areas of health, water and sanitation, shelter, protection, livelihood and migration. This revised Emergency Appeal includes a scale up of the health intervention to address the basic health needs of migrants in ten departments in Colombia.

• The scale of needs resulting from the outflow of Venezuelans is rapidly surpassing the capacities of receiving and transit countries, further straining already vulnerable host communities. In many of the arriving areas there are pre-existing conditions of vulnerability and weak or lack of health, education and protection services.
Economic instability and civil unrest have led to the displacement of Venezuelans to neighbouring countries, with more than 50,000 currently living in Brazil. This profile provides an overview of conditions in Jardim Floresta site. Population figures reported are based on registration data provided by UNHCR. Additional information collected through key informant interviews (KIIs) with actors working on the site has been used to supplement findings.

Although an upper middle-income country, Ecuador remains prone to natural disasters, including floods, earthquakes, droughts and volcanic eruptions. Extreme weather events resulting from climate change exacerbate these disasters and adversely impact food security and water availability.
Ecuador also hosts a large number of refugees and asylum-seekers from Colombia, as well as Venezuelans seeking shelter from the ongoing political and economic crisis in Venezuela.
