For refugees, starting
over is not an option.
It’s the only choice.

For us, helping is
an opportunity.

Each interiorized family
is part of our identity.

Find out the stories
they have to tell.

A dream that is dreamed
together becomes reality.

Together we are guaranteeing

WHO WE ARE

Refúgio 343 is a humanitarian organization dedicated to the response of the biggest migration challenge in the history of the Western Hemisphere.

We rescue Venezuelan refugee families in Brazil, through the process of interiorization. Our goal is to promote the socio-economic reintegration of these families in the national territory.

We are part of Operação Acolhida, Humanitarian Logistics Task Force led by the Brazilian Armed Forces, and work in partnership with leading organizations involved in responding to this crisis. Among them, Fraternidade sem Fronteiras, Pastoral Universitária, ADRA, IOM, UNHCR and AVSI Brasil.

CONTEXT

For the first time in history, 1% of humanity has been forced to flee their homes. 79.5 million human beings worldwide have left their origins behind.

Since 2015, Venezuela has been facing a socio-economic and political crisis, causing more than 5.4 million people to leave the country.

Venezuelans are the world’s second largest displaced population group, behind only Syrian refugees.
