Venezuela is experiencing a political and economic crisis – marked by devastating hyperinflation – that has led to severe food and medicine shortages and has driven three million people to flee their once-prosperous country since 2014.

"As good neighbors and supporters of the Venezuelan people, we are glad to be able to help, but we all know that this action is merely a short-term response, not a solution. For the sake of the Venezuelan people and the entire region, we must hope that the Maduro regime releases its crushing grip and that we see a return to democracy and to rule of law, for the sake of the Venezuelan people who deserve a peaceful, hopeful future." – Administrator Green

The 2020 Global Humanitarian Overview, released by the UN in December, requests $2.1 billion to support the humanitarian response for the Venezuela regional crisis in 2020. The appeal includes $750 million for humanitarian efforts in Venezuela to reach 3.5 million of the estimated 7 million people in need, and $1.35 billion to reach approximately 4 million crisis-affected individuals across 17 countries in Latin America and the Caribbean, as outlined in the 2020 Regional Refugee and Migrant Response Plan for Refugees and Migrants from Venezuela (RMRP).

The outbreak of measles in Venezuela is now under control, according to the Pan American Health Organization (PAHO). When measles returned to Venezuela unexpectedly, the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) contributed nearly $3.4 million to PAHO, including to vaccinate nine million Venezuelan children against the deadly disease, which saved the lives of people affected by the ongoing, regime-driven political and economic crisis in the country.
