My name is Solangie and I am the project coordinator for Mercy Corps in Colombia. I work on a humanitarian programme providing emergency cash assistance to Venezuelan migrants.
The majority of the families we support make a living through informal commerce, and pay for their accomodation on a daily basis. The reduction of movement means that they are now unable to work, and so are facing a lack of resources and are being evicted. There is also a shortage of protection elements.
We need governments to promote and facilitate humanitarian assistance, and to help us to find ways to mobilize and care for the people we are working with.

I can only say what has been said thousands to times before to all frontline workers whether in the NHS or providing care from other sources. Without you all many of us would not be here, or feel happier in isolation had you not sacrificed your family life and put yourselves in danger. I can only repeat with a big THANK YOU FROM THE BOTTOM OF MY HEART, you understood and cared no matter what our age.
