UNCR presents plan for Venezuelan refugees
NEW YORK - 95 organizations from 16 countries have presented a large-scale plan to deal with the flow of refugees from Venezuela. This is according to the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNCR) who has coordinated the plan.
The plan aims to ensure the safety of Venezuelan migrants on the road and to ensure that they are properly integrated into the country where they end up.
Curaçao is also considered one of the countries that have seen a large number of migrants from Venezuela in recent years. The island coincides with Aruba, Guyana, Trinidad and Tobago and Guyana under the Caribbean.
An amount of over 34 million dollars has been budgeted that should be allocated for this area: the largest part of this amount is earmarked for emergency aid. Colombia needs the most financial help: more than 300 million dollars have been calculated for this country.
The plan devotes extensive attention to poor reception of Venezuelan migrants on Curaçao and Aruba as a result of inadequate laws and regulations and the limited capacity on the islands to steer such a large inflow on the right track. In the document, the degrading conditions of the refugees are described quite explicitly.
