This #GivingTuesday, join the Inter-American Foundation (IAF) and give hope to Venezuelans fleeing poverty and violence.
Imagine having to abandon your home because the store shelves are empty, hospitals are low in basic medicines and supplies, and schools are closing without electricity. Your only option is moving to a neighboring country, in the hopes it will welcome your family and you can find a way to make it through the next day.
This is the fate of some three million Venezuelans who have fled in recent years.
The IAF is working with local organizations in countries neighboring Venezuela — including Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Ecuador, Panama and Peru — that stand ready and willing to ease the integration of people settling in these areas. These organizations are poised to help communities better understand the situation of displaced people and connect them to job opportunities and social services.
The IAF supports the visions and efforts of communities, leveraging their own organizations, resources and ingenuity. In fact, for every dollar we invest, grantee partners contribute about $1.31. Working hand in hand, our dollars go that much further.
We stand on 50 years of partnering with community organizations across Latin America and the Caribbean.
Join us in making a difference.
