Description and results


March 2020 - Over 4.8 million people have fled Venezuela since 2015, many of whom are currently residing in neighbouring countries such as Colombia, Ecuador and Peru. Ecuador is both a transit and destination country for refugees and migrants from Venezuela, with an estimated 385,000 people in need of assistance. Many are in need of basic health assistance, food and nutrition assistance, protection services, shelter, and water, sanitation and hygiene services. With GAC’s support, CARE is helping address the basic health and protection needs of crisis-affected people in Ibarra, Machala and Huaquillas in Ecuador. Project activities include: (1) providing psychosocial and legal support to vulnerable migrants and refugees; (2) providing multipurpose cash transfers to crisis-affected people; (3) distributing hygiene and gender-based violence prevention kits; and (4) providing sexual and reproductive health and rights support to vulnerable migrants and refugees

Expected results

The expected outcomes for this project include: (1) increased access to protection services, including psychosocial and legal support, for migrants and refugees; and (2) increased access to reproductive health services for women and girls. The expected ultimate outcome is lives saved, suffering alleviated and human dignity maintained in countries experiencing humanitarian crises or acute food insecurity.
