Success Story: Peru - Providing Cash Assistance to Venezuelans in Peru

Speeches Shim

More than 4.6 million Venezuelans have fled due to the deteriorating economic and social situation in Venezuela, including an estimated 3.8 million traveling to countries in Latin America and the Caribbean. Approximately 863,600 Venezuelans resided in Peru as of November 2019, the secondhighest number of Venezuelans of any country in the region.

Since April 2019, USAID Office of Food for Peace (USAID/FFP) and USAID Office of U.S. Foreign Disaster Assistance (USAID/OFDA) partner Save the Children International (SCI) has supported Venezuelans in Peru’s Arequipa, La Libertad, Lambayeque, Lima, and Piura regions by providing multipurpose cash assistance (MPCA) and hosting information sessions on child protection, nutrition, and infant and young child feeding.
