On 26 May, the international community gathered again to show solidarity with millions of Venezuelan refugees and migrants who have had to flee their country in order to find refuge abroad, especially in the neighbouring countries including Colombia, Peru and Ecuador. The Covid-19 pandemic has only aggravated their already dire situation, and their access to health services, water and sanitation, education, housing and a decent social and economic life. The aim of this second International Conference has been to shine the spotlight on the increasing needs of all these Venezuelans who seek protection, and for whom the outbreak of the Covid-19 pandemic presents an additional challenge of unpredictable magnitude. Our mission only starts now.
The Government of Spain and the European Union welcome the political and financial response from the International Community to the dramatic crisis of over 4 million displaced Venezuelans, which for many years have been hosted and welcomed by neighbouring countries.
The solidarity shown from the countries in the region, has been praised and supported today by their partners and donor countries. They have pledged €2.544 billion to complement and support the efforts already under way from the host communities.

El coronavirus se ha enseñoreado de nuestras vidas particulares y de nuestra vida colectiva. El mundo entero lleva más de dos meses sumergido en un confinamiento de personas, ciudades y países, atento al ritmo cambiante de las cifras de contagiados, curados y fallecidos. Los medios traducen este baile de números en calidad de la gestión, en países que lo han hecho mejor y países que lo han hecho peor, en un ranking de pueblos y de gobernantes.
