Strengthening the humanitarian response to the protection needs of vulnerable refugees and migrants from Venezuela and the recent displaced population, victims of the armed conflict
The project aims to enhance the humanitarian response to the protection needs of refugees and migrants from Venezuela, as well as victims of the armed conflict and vulnerable host communities, contributing integrally to the resilience of the population. This includes the promotion of physical and mental dignity through comprehensive actions aimed at overcoming barriers to accessing basic services and exercising socio-economic and health rights in the Putumayo region, Colombia.
This project focuses on humanitarian aid in an emergency and protection with a simultaneous community and individual approach, seeking to promote psychosocial alternatives to accessing social rights and physical and mental health, for example through the incorporation of mobile Listening Centres for basic health care. Assistance is provided directly, with the possibility of referring cases to public health institutions or other humanitarian organisations for comprehensive channelled assistance to persons identified and duly registered for their specific protection needs. Access to rights can be complemented with the provision of humanitarian assistance through CBI: multi-purpose cash deliveries and/or non-cash assistance (shelter, food, transport and/or kits according to an EGD, age/gender/diversity approach).
At the same time, an inter-institutional and inter-agency coordination strategy with a community focus is developed with the intention of disseminating information on health risks generated by COVID-19 and promoting capacity building for community and individual mobilization to mitigate risks in a coordinated manner.
To improve the humanitarian response to the population of refugees and migrants from Venezuela, as well as to the victims of the recent armed conflict and the vulnerable host community, contributing in an integral way to the resilience of the population.
