Colombia Mission 1 a Go!

Posted by worldorphanrelief on February 14, 2019

VE 2

By the end of this month I will be wheels-up for our second mission in the Western Hemisphere, this time to Colombia.  Our goal is to provide aid to Venezuelan refugees and assess the overall situation first-hand.

Currently, there are over 1 million refugees from Venezuela in Colombia, in addition to the 7.7 million Colombian IDPs (displaced during the strife with FARC).  Though The Fishermen is a small ECOSOC member, we have a responsibility to address issues such as this, especially when the affected are our neighbors.

This will be a fact-finding mission which will result in the production of a report on the conditions of orphaned children specifically.  It will be made pubic as quickly as possible.  Time in-country will be approximately 1 week.
