The Adventist Development and Relief Agency (ADRA) in Colombia is helping hundreds of Venezuelan migrants who are making their way back to their country on foot after losing their jobs in Colombia due to the pandemic crisis.
According to the latest Colombia Migration report of April, 2020, more than 80,000 Venezuelans have returned home out of the 1,825,000 spread across Colombia. The government reports that many continue to journey back home with their belongings after losing their home and a way to support their families.
Amid that situation, ADRA Colombia set up their Adventist Mobile Unit in highways, and strategic points in cities like Bogota, Medellin, Bucaramanga, and Cututa–where many travelers stop on the way to the northern border with Venezuela.
