Americas: Population movement


The International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (IFRC) and National Red Cross Societies in the Americas need your help to support people on the move and host communities in several affected countries.

Millions of people are currently moving across Venezuela and several other countries in the Americas, and the humanitarian needs are growing. National Red Cross Societies in Argentina, Brazil, Ecuador, Guyana, Panama, Peru, Trinidad and Tobago, and Uruguay are being supported by IFRC to deliver much-needed assistance. A 4.8 million Swiss franc appeal for Colombia was launched in 2018.
