So, we've been providing assistance to Venezuelan migrants for the last couple of years. Nearly 4 million Venezuelans have fled Maduro, fled the regime, fled the suffering. So, in that sense, the scale is almost unprecedented. This is the largest mass-migration event in Latin American history, forever. It's unprecedented in that sense.

The other part to it that makes it so different is it's man-made and regime-driven. This is not an earthquake. This is not a hurricane. This is not a tornado or a flood. This is one man and one regime imposing dictatorial rule, imposing suffering, and pain, on people. It's entirely man-made. It doesn't have to be. So, again, we're hopeful that the day is coming when it will all change, and we'll get new leadership, and a better future.
