UN to Provide Assistance to 2.5 Million Venezuelans Until 2022

Venezuela: 5.9 million dollars allocated to help 55,933 people with urgent needs

The Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA) of the United Nations (UN) published a report this Wednesday detailing that over 5.6 million people in Venezuela have received some form of humanitarian aid. Of the total, 1.09 were adults between the ages of 18 and 59, 861,000 were children and adolescents and 590,000 people over 60 years of age.

The Venezuelan Humanitarian Fund (FVH) reported an allocation of 5.9 million dollars delivered last December to non-governmental organizations of the Caribbean country for the development of assistance projects for people with urgent needs.

The money will help 55,933 people in the states of Amazonas and Apure (bordering Colombia) and Sucre (northeast). The interventions will be carried out in 11 municipalities “where there is a high incidence of human trafficking and violence, as well as a lack of basic services, and a loss of livelihoods that increases the levels of vulnerability and protection risks of the most vulnerable groups.”

The assistance has been carried out by 146 organizations, of which 98 are national, 27 international, 11 programs belonging to the UN with a presence in Venezuela, 2 linked to the Red Cross and another 8 unspecified.

The funds, part of the Humanitarian Response Plan approved last year, have provided to those living with urgent needs the delivery of over 2.4 million people for health care, 1 million for access to drinking water, sanitation and hygiene, 459,000 for nutrition supplements, among other necessities.
