Given the recent political escalations in #Venezuela and the increasing number of migrants fleeing the country, Rise Against Hunger and in-country partners are working to serve those walking along the migrant route into Colombia. As we continue to provide aid, we encourage you to follow in the path of Marta and Douglas, two neighbors living along the migrant route in Colombia, who have opened their shared carport to offer shelter and feed up to 600 people per day. Without official shelters and crucial necessities for migrants fleeing Venezuela, access to nourishing food is critical. With your donation and support, you can provide the life-saving aid that is much needed as we continue to serve those impacted by this crisis.
