Throughout Colombia, all churches and most businesses closed in the wake of the pandemic. This has left many people suffering because of loss of income or the supports that were previously available. Venezuelan refugees living on the streets were already in a vulnerable position and have been especially impacted. Although the Colombian government has taken steps to help the sick, unemployed, and Venezuelan refugees, the economic situation in the country has been restrictive to providing financial assistance.
This need is one of those being addressed through FAIR’s Weathering the Storm special appeal. You can learn more about how FAIR is ministering to Colombians in need by clicking here.
