CONTEXT

Since 2015, Venezuela has been facing a socio-economic and political crisis, causing more than 5 million people to flee the country.

Venezuelans are the world’s second largest displaced population group, behind only Syrian refugees, who reach over 5.6 million people.

This figure is expected to reach the 6.5 million mark by 2020
