One of the largest ever movements of people is currently taking place across the Americas. National Red Cross Societies in Argentina, Brazil, Ecuador, Guyana, Panama, Peru, Trinidad and Tobago, Uruguay and Venezuela are being supported by IFRC to deliver much-needed assistance. A 4.8 million Swiss franc appeal for Colombia was launched earlier this year.

This new regional appeal will support 200,000 of the most vulnerable people on the move and in host communities for 12 months. The operation will include shelter, livelihoods and basic needs, health, water and sanitation, and protection, gender and inclusion.
