A major political, economic and social crisis is causing severe suffering and shortages of basic goods. Millions of Venezuelans are leaving the country. They need help. Jesuit parishes, schools and social centres are providing shelter, food, psychosocial and spiritual support to people in need. Jesuit Refugee Service is providing humanitarian assistance to Venezuelan refugees at the borders.
