The Faces of the Venezuelan Crisis

Once considered the wealthiest country in Latin America, Venezuela now faces a severe economic and political crisis under the contested leadership of Nicolás Maduro. The crisis has caused millions of Venezuelans and their families to flee to Colombia in search of better lives.

Our hope is that the stories we gathered in Colombia will shed light on Venezuelans’ struggles and inspire positive change for the millions of people displaced by the humanitarian crisis in their home country.
