JOB CONTEXT :
The socioeconomic crisis in Venezuela continued to deteriorate throughout 2018, leading to further collapse of services, deterioration of health facilities, food security, and nutrition among the population, and one of the biggest mass displacements in South America’s history. According to UNHCR at least 2.5 million Venezuelans have left the country since 2014, though other sources estimate that this figure could exceed 4 million, including nearly 2 million in Colombia. The fallouts of the crisis across the region have increased proportionally: 3.4 million migrants/refugees are registered in neighboring countries (Colombia, Peru, Ecuador, Brazil and other Latin-American and Caribbean countries), as well as in the US and in Europe, according to UNHCR-IOM.

HI intends to respond by implementing an intervention through local partners, with the aim to improve the living conditions of the most vulnerable, including persons with disabilities, by ensuring access to inclusive and quality services & livelihoods through a multi-sectoral response. The response will include inclusive humanitarian action; rehabilitation and MHPSS support as well as food distribution.
