Challenges for humanitarian organizations in Venezuela
Local organizations have been addressing the sustained, complex emergency in Venezuelan since 2015. They are struggling to get acknowledgment of the humanitarian crisis affecting Venezuelans, and their right to be assisted and protected by the humanitarian aid.
Since 2019, humanitarian agencies have joint efforts to face the crisis. However, support for the humanitarian efforts has been reduced during a period of greater need. This is putting at risk the lives and dignity of Venezuelans in dire need of assistance.
The National Humanitarian Platform sees with great concern how a number of factors are threatening Venezuelans. These challenges are leaving people in need unprotected, reducing local response capacity, and undermining the autonomy and action of Venezuelan NGOs.
