The hardship experienced by these refugees, including unemployment, homelessness, and lack of basic necessities like food, water, and electricity, was further compounded by the influence of armed groups that claimed control over certain areas, asserting themselves as ‘COVID crisis controllers’.
To address these challenges, Give to the World partnered with Motorrad Angels in Colombia. Together, they provided clean water filtration systems, distributed essential supplies like food and medical items, and even extended dental care to vulnerable communities. A special “work forward” initiative empowered single mothers by helping them establish coffee carts, granting them a sustainable source of income. By supporting these communities, Give to the World aimed to alleviate the refugees’ burdens and weaken the grip of armed groups.

Regrettably, essential aid continued to be withheld by the government, exacerbating the suffering of countless Venezuelans.
