Help Venezuelan Refugees | Assisting Relief Efforts


Entire families are forced to leave their homes with only what they can carry on their backs. The long journey across the Colombian border has become very common these days. The majority of Venezuelan refugees, who make it into Colombia, are sleeping in refugee camps, unemployed and without enough food. This fund will support Venezuelan refugees. We will work with other organizations in the Colombia–Venezuela border who are committed to providing assistance and support to those in need.


Due to hyper-inflation caused by the failing government, many Venezuelans are fleeing the country. According to the Colombian government, one million Venezuelans have entered Columbia and 660,000 have remained. The WFP estimates that 90% of these refugees do not have enough food and medical supplies to survive.


This fund is helping to provide life-saving relief efforts to Venezuelan refugees living in refugee camps. In addition, the fund is assisting the communities that are receiving the refugees and helping them through their migration. SAI is committed to providing food, medicine and job training to refugees in need.

Long-term impact

South American Initiative and its partners are working diligently to help Venezuelan refugees. SAI is devoted to continuing its effort in Venezuela until the food and medical shortage is resolved.

It’s no secret that almost four million Venezuelans have fled the country in search of a better future for themselves and their children. However, many Venezuelans who are attempting  to leave the country are blocked at the Venezuelan/Colombian border.

Due to the blockade of humanitarian aid, SAI has had to mobilize towards the borders with Colombia to assist the Venezuelans who are stranded. We have managed to get food and supplies for many adults and children who have not eaten for days.

We are working to improve the quality of life of every Venezuelan stranded on the border. For this reason, we thank all our donors for providing desperately needed support to help refugee families in Venezuela.

Every day, more Venezuelans leave their homes to start a new life in other countries, Colombia being the closest and sharing the same language, has become the first option for refuge. These refugees are unable to cross into Colombia due to insufficient immigration documents, lack of food, money and resources.

Thanks to each of our faithful donors through GlobalGiving we have sent a team of volunteers to one of the refugee camps located on the border between Colombia and Venezuela.  We have delivered boxes of food, water and other supplies.  Funds raised through GlobalGiving will continue to be used to help refugees in border towns and assist refugees in Colombia.

Your contribution to South American Initiative makes the expansion of this project a reality and increases the amount of supplies available to Venezuelan refugees. Thousands of refugees will benefit from your generous donations.
