Between 2018 and 2020, 7 million people were estimated to have humanitarian needs in Venezuela. By the end of 2020, UNFPA had reached more than 460,000 vulnerable women with roughly 28% of the resources needed to provide lifesaving assistance in prioritized communities. Today, women’s necessities are on the rise and the lack of financial support threatens UNFPA’s operations to address them, while the protracted crisis deepens in conjunction with the impacts of human mobility and the COVID-19. 

UNFPA is calling for greater international support to fulfill the financial need of $26.7 million urgently, and save the lives and protect the rights of one million women, adolescents, and girls in the most vulnerable communities in Venezuela. The funds will be used to guarantee lifesaving sexual and reproductive services and multi-sectoral response to gender-based violence (GBV), deteriorated by the impact of a protracted socio-economic crisis.
