Alleviating hunger - Building Peace

July 2019 - January 2020 - The Hope for Venezuelan Refugees Project helped alleviate hunger and improve the condition of malnutrition among vulnerable Venezuelan refugees, migrants, and walkers ‘caminantes,’ and Colombian returnees in Cúcuta and Pamplona through the donation of 26 tons of Rise Against Hunger (RAH) meals and approximately 21 tons of locally produced complementary foods (commodities) to existing food distribution centers and shelters preparing and serving food to this target population. These donations were distributed among 5 food distributions centers (comedores) in Cúcuta-Los Patios; 6 shelters and 2 food distributions centers (comedores) in Pamplona; 7 communities in La Comuna 9 in Cúcuta.

Our project helps to promote peace “When people no longer need to fight over food, peace will reign.”

  9. 9. 9 1. Brief Crisis Overview Venezuelan Humanitarian Crisis Update Venezuelans are struggling to survive in a country experiencing the worst political and economic crisis in its history. With a monthly minimum salary of US $2.20 plus food stamps equivalent to US $5.49, the salary is barely equivalent to eight dollars.1 The economy reflects a hyperinflation of 10,000,000 percent.2 The lack of food, and medicines, the collapse od basic services such as electricity, water and gas, no job opportunities, and widespread crime has forced 1 in 7 Venezuelans to abandon their homeland. Children, the elderly, and the sick are increasingly dying of causes related to hunger, malnutrition, and disease. Venezuelan Exodus As a result, the Western Hemisphere is facing the most significant refugee exodus in Latin American’s history. Globally, only Syria, which has suffered from war for more than eight years, surpasses Venezuela in the flow of migrants and refugees. According to the UNHCR (United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees) and OIM (Organization of International Migrations), the number of Venezuelans leaving their country has reached 4.8 million, representing over 13 percent of the country’s total population. 3 Food Insecurity According the World Food Program (WFP): - Venezuela: One of every three people in Venezuela is struggling to put enough food on the table to meet minimum nutrition requirements as the nation’s severe economic contraction and political upheaval persists as published in in a study in February 2020.4 - Colombia: Eighty percent of Venezuelan refugees in Colombia suffer from food insecurity, according to a survey presented in September 2018.5 Humanitarian Crisis in Colombia Currently, Colombia is hosting more than 1.6 million Venezuelan refugees6 , migrants, and walkers ‘caminantes,’ in addition to about half a million Colombian returnees, and another 500,000 migrants in transit to other countries like Ecuador, Perú, and Chile. These countries are not prepared to receive this large migration flow which is exerting 1 https://panampost.com/sabrina-martin/2018/01/04/new-monthly-minimum-wage-in-venezuela-barely-enough-to-buy-daily-cup-of-coffee/?cn- reloaded=1 2 https://in.reuters.com/article/venezuela-economy/imf-sees-venezuela-inflation-at-10-million-percent-in-2019-idINKCN1MJ1YX 3 ://www.usaid.gov/sites/default/files/documents/1866/02.12.20-USG-Venezuela-Regional-Crisis-Fact-Sheet-1.pdf 4 https://apnews.com/88519b3806497d02619e710e91bc4ed8 5 https://www.efe.com/efe/america/sociedad/onu-el-80-de-los-refugiados-venezolanos-en-colombia-sufren-inseguridad-alimentaria/20000013- 3749335 6 https://reliefweb.int/report/colombia/wfp-colombia-situation-report-december-2019
  10. 10. 10 a lot of pressure on the local and federal governments, the organizations and the community to create the needed policies and programs to present solutions to the increasing challenges this crisis is causing in the job market, food supply healthcare and public services, infrastructure and education. Although Colombians have welcomed their Venezuelan neighbors, signs of resentment among jobless local residents is growing leading to discrimination, rejection and xenophobia towards the Venezuelan refugee and migrant population. This situation has created a negative impact on the community hindering the access to social and economic services. The Venezuelan exodus into Colombia is unprecedented in the region and represents a challenge too great for Colombians to handle alone. Colombian President Ivan Duque has announced a generous policy toward Venezuelan refugees in Colombia, including giving citizenship to children born in Colombia.7 A portion of this burden must be shared with other countries since the destabilizing effects of the Venezuelan situation also affects other Latin American nations. Unprepared to receive the large migration, these countries are under a lot of pressure to create policies effectives and programs in response to the increasing challenges this crisis is causing in the job market, food supply, healthcare, and public services, infrastructure and education. As the crisis in Venezuela worsens and the Venezuelan migration increases, Colombia might have to consider long- term solutions to the refugee crisis or declare a humanitarian crisis. 7 https://www.worldpoliticsreview.com/insights/28197/venezuelan-immigration-to-colombia-is-spiking-here-s-how-duque-is-handling-it
  11. 11. 11 Mixed Flow of Migrants Colombia shares a 1,400-mile border with Venezuela. One border town in particular, Cúcuta, a Colombian city bordering San Antonio del Táchira in Venezuela, has become the focal point for the Venezuelan migration and is suffering the burden of this crisis. The 2020 Regional Refugees and Migrant Response Plan8 projects some 5.6 million Venezuelans will have settled in or passed through Colombia by the end of 2020, with 1.8 million requiring food assistance. Types of mixed migration: - In-destination: Individuals who have left their usual place of residence with the intention to remain in a host country. - Pendular population: temporary and usually repeated population movements, which may represent a movement pattern between the Venezuelan-Colombia - n border. Colombia is expecting a significant increase in the pendular population since approximately 4.2 million Venezuelans have a Border Mobility Card (TMF), issued by the Colombian government. This card allows for temporary stay in Colombia. Pendular movements primarily aim to buy basic goods, and other services or seek temporary employment to support themselves and their families in Venezuela. o Lack of opportunities to generate formal and secure income for this group creates a risk of exploitation. In addition, when Venezuelan people fail to physically cross to through formal border points, crossing other areas creates other risks derived from the presence of armed and criminal groups, including human trafficking, forced recruitment and prostitution. o Venezuelan people who temporarily enter Colombia also require basic medical care and food. - Returnees: individuals who have left Venezuela and return to Colombia. Their main need is access to nationality and documentation, as well as greater assistance in the procedure to access these rights and in the reintegration in their home country. Within this group, there is a particular concern: o Colombian refugees and returned victims of armed conflict. While there are no figures available, there are Colombians with international protection between returnees. These people will need support to prevent re-victimization and to access institutional care for victims of armed conflict, with the aim of ensuring, as appropriate, humanitarian assistance, compensation and /or reparation for victims of rape. - In-transit: individuals that have left Venezuela and are transiting through a country prior to entering their intended country of destination. - Refugees: the UN Refugee Agency (UNHCR), considers that the majority of those fleeing Venezuela are in need of international refugee protection9 because of the threats to their lives, security or freedom resulting from circumstances that are seriously disturbing public order in Venezuela. - Venezuelan walkers ‘caminantes’: Venezuelans migrants leaving their country arriving in Colombia on foot. Everyday thousands of caminantes cross the border into Colombia. Some of them plan to walk from the Colombian border to Ecuador, Peru, and Chile. These migrants face different risks and have critical needs including: 8 https://reliefweb.int/sites/reliefweb.int/files/resources/72254.pdf 9 https://www.unhcr.org/en-us/news/briefing/2019/5/5ce3bb734/majority-fleeing-venezuela-need-refugee-protection-unhcr.html
  12. 12. 12 o Access to safe transportation is one of the primary needs identified by individuals’ refugees and migrants. o Food, as 80% of migrants are at high risk of food insecurity. o Access to shelter. o Protection against discrimination. o Protection from the armed irregular groups. o Access to water and sanitation during their long journey. - Host community: a population in a country of intended destination that share the same geographical location with refugees and migrants from Venezuela and/or are in need of access to the same services. These communities require support to cope with the growing pressure caused by the migrants. This includes, in particular: o Support in terms of access to basic services and housing. o Support to educational and health institutions, which now exceed their capacity. o In this context, it is also necessary to ensure the commitment of the community, social cohesion and efforts to combat discrimination and xenophobia.
  13. 13. 13 o An effective integration will also require the continuation and expansion of efforts to promote peaceful coexistence among refugees and migrants from Venezuela and host communities, including projects to benefit all the populations and campaigns against discrimination and xenophobia at community level. - Cross-border indigenous communities: such as the Wayuu and Yukpa communities, are not recognized as nationals of one country or another, and are affected due to the situation in Venezuela, as well as the arrival conditions and the impact of be uprooted from their traditional lands. o Access to registration, documentation, rights and services is essential for these communities. o The assistance and mechanisms to guarantee the recognition of their Colombian nationality are essential to guarantee the access to basic services and livelihoods, protecting them from the effects of violence and armed conflicts. (Some of the information was taking from Regional Response Plan for Refugees and Migrants for Refugees and Migrants from Venezuela January - December 201910 ). Absence of Refugee Camps in the Cúcuta Border “Even though most refugees and migrants have urgent humanitarian needs such as protection, food, and shelter, being able to have a regular status in Colombia is a priority,” said Jozef Merkx, UNHCR representative for Colombia.[1] The Colombian authorities are avoiding opening shelters on the border with Cúcuta because they don’t want to provide a place for people “to stick around.” The authorities are trying to prevent the “pull factor” that camps may create, encouraging more Venezuelans to arrive in a city that is already overburdened with high rate of unemployment and crime. Additionally, the risk of refugee camps becoming attractive to armed groups in Colombia is high. These armed groups can target vulnerable people who can be exploited or recruited. Colombian officials encourage Venezuelan newcomers to stay with friends or relatives already living in Colombia or to move on to other countries. Therefore, many Venezuelan are living in informal and overcrowded settlements, in public buildings, on the streets, and in places that do not meet minimum standards and could lead to protection and security risks. Furthermore, these places do not have access to clean water, necessary hygiene items, and quality sanitation, which could have a negative impact on the refugee population, the environment, and the community. Others have joined family members and/or friends in overcrowding homes, thus increasing these families’ vulnerability and social problems. The vast majority face high levels of unemployment and competition for informal jobs. The Shelters (Albergues) of the Red Humanitaria Thousands of people cross the Venezuelan-Colombian border every day in search of jobs, food, and a place to live. Hundreds of women, children, and men walk to other cities. The walkers ‘caminantes,’ as they are known, walk approximately 556 kilometers from Cúcuta to Bogotá. Others walk for weeks to other countries on a narrow road 10 http://reporting.unhcr.org/node/21600
  14. 14. 14 in life-threatening weather conditions without money or food. They have no place to go and feel hopeless for leaving everything they worked for behind. - An average person walks at a speed of 5 km / hour - One hour by vehicle equals10 hours walking - The walking time is relative and depends on the weight the ‘caminantes’ walkers carry, their physical condition and resistance, the weather, food and shelter availability, type of shoe, whether or not they walk with children, and senior citizens, etc. Some Colombians citizens with great compassion for the suffering of the Venezuelan refugees, migrants, walkers ‘caminantes,’ and Colombian returnees have turned their home into temporary shelters (albergues) for this population in the Cúcuta-Bogotá route known as the Red Humanitaria (Humanitarian Network).
  15. 15. 15 The Hope For Venezuelan Refugees logo on the map shows the shelters (albergues) we support with the donation of RAH meals and complementary foods. These shelters (albergues) provided the refugees and migrants a hot meal and a place to spend the night before continuing the long and arduous journey. Unfortunately, two of the shelters in the most vulnerable areas have closed due to a lack of resources or xenophobia, leaving unattended the most critical region between Pamplona and the Berlin Páramo located at 2,800 and 4,290 meters above sea level, where temperatures can drop to below 32 °F at nigh 2. Project Planning & Preparation Assessment and Evaluation Based on the evaluation of the challenges faced during Phase 1 of the project, we developed a more efficient plan to improve the distribution of the boxes of the RAH meals, ordering and distribution of complementary foods, and collection of the beneficiary registration lists. The fact remains that food and health are the most fundamental priorities that need to be addressed in this humanitarian crisis. However, most of the aid from major international organizations is concentrated in the city of Cúcuta. Local faith organizations and the World Food Program (WFP) have taken the lead in response to this
  16. 16. 16 humanitarian crisis. This leaves most of the shelters and food distribution centers in the Red Humanitaria route from Cúcuta to Bucaramanga unattended. Therefore, after reviewing the list of food distribution centers in Cúcuta we provided boxes of RAH meals during Phase 1, it was decided to exclude from Phase 2 of the project, those food distribution centers supported by the World Food Program (WFP). Identified a Logistic Partner in Pamplona In preparation to the arrival of the containers with RAH meals, we established a new partnership with the Fundación Banco de Alimento de Pamplona Gran Pacto por la Alimentación. This organization committed to store the RAH boxes, provide access to the internet and space for our team to work during the weekly distributions. Secured the Logistic Partner Cúcuta The Banco Diocesano de Alimentos de Cúcuta agree to provide storage, security, meeting room, administrative support, and volunteers to help with the inventory control of the boxes of RAH meals for Comuna 9, and the food distribution centers en Cúcuta and Los Patios. However, due to the weak economy in the city of Cúcuta and a decrease in donations, the Banco de Alimentos de Cúcuta requested a fee to help pay for their operating expenses. The cost of this operating fee was shared between the Rotary Club of Cúcuta and the Rotary e-Club of Houston. Reaffirmed Current and New Partnerships and Support Networks The Hope For Venezuelan Refugees team met with the network of support organization to reaffirm the current partnership and responsibilities: - Rotary e-Club of Houston: responsible for fundraising, development, coordination, financial control, and implementation of the project. - Rise Against Hunger: main partner, and food donor. - Banco de Alimentos de la Dioceses of Cúcuta COSPAS: provides storage, security, inventory control, meeting room, administrative support, and volunteers in Cúcuta. - Fundación Banco de Alimentos de Pamplona: provides storage, security, inventory control, meeting room, administrative support and volunteers in Pamplona. - Rotary Club of Cúcuta 1: #7268 is our local Rotary partner and facilitates the financial administration, local food purchase, and contacts with the media. - Presidential Agency of International Cooperation of the Government of Colombia (APC)

  19. 19. 19 Containers Arrival Logistic Container 2: a 20-foot container with 8 pallets with 356 boxes (6 tons) with 76,896 RAH meals of fortified rice- soybean with dehydrated vegetables enriched with 18 minerals and vitamins departed from the Port of Philadelphia on April 24, 2019 and arrived into the Port of Cartagena on May 22, 2019. Container 3: a 40-foot container 1320 boxes (20 tons) with 285,120 of RAH meals of fortified rice-soybean with dehydrated vegetables enriched with 18 minerals and vitamins departed from the Port of Houston on June 18, 2019 and arrived into the Port of Cartagena on June 27, 2019. On July 15, 2019, a truck filled with 1,320 boxes of RAH meals arrived at the Fundación Banco de Alimentos de Pamplona. https://flic.kr/s/aHsmFkVpPt On August 8, 2019, 358 boxes of RAH meals were transported to the Banco Diocesano de Alimentos de Cúcuta, and https://flic.kr/s/aHsmG1H7wM On December 19, 2019, another 215 boxes of RAH meals were transported to the Banco Diocesano de Alimentos de Cúcuta.
  20. 20. 20 Survey A survey was created to identify food distribution centers no supported by the World Food Program (WFP), and additional shelters from Pamplona to Bucaramanga in need of food.

The shelter used to serve 250 migrants and was supported with donations from this religious community. Now, that the shelter Albergue Posada La Esperanza is closed, there are no shelters between Berlin and Bucaramanga, and the Venezuelan walkers 'caminantes' have to walk approximately 18 to 20 hours to Bucaramanga in the coldest and highest altitude region of the Red Humanitaria route.
  22. 22. 22 D. Actual Achievements Based on the Proposed Objectives 3. Rise Against Hunger Meal Distribution During Phases 2, the Hope For Venezuelan Refugees team worked very closely with our Logistic partners and Beneficiary Organizations to develop a comprehensive plan to distribute the donation of 26 tons of Rise Against Hunger (RAH) rice-soy fortified meals and complementary food commodities. A total of 362,016 RAH meals were distributed among the selected food distribution centers and shelters preparing and serving hot meals to the target population in 5 food distribution centers/community kitchens (comedores), 7 communities in Comuna 9 in Cúcuta and 6 shelters (albergues) and 3 food distribution centers from Los Patios to El Alto in Pamplona. Additionally, we purchased approximately 21 tons of locally produced complementary food commodities (chicken, can tuna, eggs, oil, bread, table chocolate, milk oats, vegetables, herbs, condiments, grains, etc.) to help support the local economy, help decrease the xenophobia towards migrants, increase nutritional value, complement the Rise Against Hunger meals, and add diverse local flavor. The donation from Rise Against Hunger enabled our team to respond to the food insecurity affecting thousands of Venezuelan refugees, migrants, walkers ‘caminantes,’ and Colombian returnees in the selected food distribution centers and shelters on the Cúcuta-Pamplona route. The Phase 2 of the project was scheduled to begin August 9, 2019 for 13 weeks. However, the project was initiated a week earlier on July 27, 2019, due to an urgent request for food from the Centro de Apoyo Mery in El Alto in Pamplona.
  23. 23. 23 Initial RAH Boxes Distribution Plan 1-13 Weeks July 27, 2019 - October 25, 2019 During this Phase we projected to increase the capacity of the selected food distribution centers and shelters in Cúcuta and Pamplona by distributing: - 20 tons of Rise Against Hunger (RAH) rice-soy fortified meals - 1,320 boxes of RAH fortified meals with dehydrated vegetables and micro-nutrient packages o Each box has 36 bags with 6 RAH meals each for a total of 285,120 meals - Projected the distribution of RAH boxes based on the information collected in the survey and personal verification meetings with the coordinators - Created a system to maintain the weekly inventory of RAH boxes - Scheduled regular visits to the food distribution center and shelters to confirm inventory and usage of RAH meals. Reviewed the weekly distribution of RAH meals and adjusted it according to the migration flow and other donors’ donations. Weekly Pick-Up Distribution Plan We coordinated and established a weekly pick-up/distribution plan of the RAH boxes with the Logistic Partners. - For Cúcuta - Los Patios: Friday was selected as the pick-up day at the Banco Diocesano de Alimentos de Cúcuta for the 5 food distribution centers (comedores) in Cúcuta-Los Patios - For Pamplona: Saturday was selected as the pick-up day at the Fundación Banco de Alimentos de Pamplona for the 6 shelters (albergues) and 2 food distribution centers in Pamplona. - The number of RAH boxes distributed weekly was based on the
  24. 24. 24 The number of RAH boxes distributed weekly was based on the weekly evaluation of the flow of the Venezuelan refugees, migrants, walkers ‘caminantes,’ and Colombian returnees during these 13 weeks, and, considering the particular condition of the selected food distributions centers and shelters in Cúcuta and Pamplona, we observed the following: - Increase of migrant flow at Comedor Santo Domingo Savio and Comedor Fundación Servidoras Madres para los Abandonado en las Calles - Decrease of refugees and caminantes flow to Pamplona - Temporary closing of Albergue La Chirimoya for remodeling and repairs - Closing of On the Ground International former Albergue Fundar 2 At the end of September 2019, the shelters experience a decrease of approximately 50% on the flow of refugees, migrants, caminantes, and returnees. At that point, we also witnessed a regressive migration from the cities and countries hosting the Venezuelan refugees toward Venezuela. Many of these refugees worked in the various host countries and saved money to take to their families in Venezuela during the Christmas holidays. Those who earned the most were able to travel by bus; others walk back to Venezuela. Most of them try to find a job in Cúcuta to earn extra money to take to their families. This situation caused tremendous chaos in the already overcrowded bordering region. For detailed RAH Boxes Weekly Distribution refer to Annex-I. Beneficiary Registration Lists The collection of the registration lists continues to be challenging, especially in the shelters (albergues). These shelters are set up by humble Colombians who want to help the Venezuelans refugees and the Colombian returnees. They go out of their way to rent a place to run their shelter, try to get money to pay for a cook and shelter keeper, pay for the utilities, food, and anything else they can afford. However, there are no resources to pay a person dedicated to keeping the registration lists. Usually, the cook and/or the volunteers try to register the people when she is no cooking. This is the case in all of the shelters except for the Albergue de Paso La Chirimoya where the Red Cross and UN have designated staff to register the refugees and distribute the WFP food kits assigned to this support point. Under this circumstance, we developed a system to collect the lists of beneficiaries weekly: - Coordinators and/or volunteers of each one of the food distribution center and shelters submitted the beneficiary registration lists the same day of their weekly picked up of RAH boxes. - The project staff collected, digitalized, printed, and tally the registration lists of beneficiaries from weeks 1-26. The pictures of the lists were manually totaled and uploaded to Smartsheet. - It was not possible to standardize the registration forms. However, most of the registration forms collect similar information: o Date, ID #, name, last name, place of origin, destination, female/male o Other, contained age, # of children, etc. For detailed Beneficiary’s Registration refer to Annex-II or download the Beneficiary’s Registration Lists from the following in Smartsheet link https://app.smartsheet.com/sheets/phqX76g48hRg95MVMJxX2R8g5Pp79vHW2fC7hcP1

Individuals and humanitarian organizations On September 15, WCK stopped their operations in Colombia but continued providing food commodities to the Fundación Colombo Venezolana Nueva Ilusión in Los Patios.
  27. 27. 27 This message was published by Alejandro Pérez, in charge of the food operation of World Central Kitchen (WCK) in Colombia via the Red Humanitaria WhatsApp chat, “after 7 months of hard work and with the collaboration of all we managed to feed 660,000 people. But I would like to make an announcement that I think is important. On August 26, 2019, WCK operations were infiltrated by 2 armed Venezuelan individuals who kept the entire team in a room with firearms to their faces while trying to steal everything they could. WCK takes the security of our team extremely seriously, and that is why the decision was made to stop the project. The decision to withdraw the program from Colombia was extremely difficult for everyone, but we understand that we cannot put the lives of our members at risk. We will continue to monitor the situation very closely. (…)” Additionally, on September 2019, the emergency relief funding ran short, and most of the organizations and individuals supporting the region stopped their support and left the country. Due to these circumstances, our project Hope For Venezuelan Refugees and the RAH became the main food donor to the selected shelters in Bochalema, Pamplonita, Pamplona, y Mutiscua, and the food distributions centers in Cúcuta and Los Patios. Extended RAH Boxes Distribution Plan Weeks 14-26 November 1, 2019 to January 31, 2020 Considering the above, our team re-evaluated the project, and a result we extended the project from week 14-26 as follows: - 9 weeks of RAH boxes distribution with the last distribution schedule for December 28, 2019, and - 4 additional weeks of RAH Meals utilization until January 31, 2020 November 1, 2019 - January 31, 2019 - 13 weeks (9 weeks of RAH boxes distribution, and - 4 additional weeks projected for RAH meals utilization) During weeks 14-26: - 604 RAH boxes where distributed - 154,656 meals distributed - 130,464 beneficiary names collected in registration lists from the food distribution centers and shelters

This table reflects the flow of beneficiaries based per food distribution centers and shelters. Since we don’t have the technical capacity to verify if each register is unique. Therefore, most likely, one person registered in more than one food distribution centers and/or shelter at different times. As a result, even though we were able to document, count and verify the actual number of beneficiaries registered on the lists, we were are not able to accurately calculate the total number of people that benefitted from the RAH meals and the complementary food commodities donation.
  30. 30. 30 4. Complementary Food Commodities Distribution
  31. 31. 31 Our team contacted Super Mercados Ebenezer in Cúcuta to secure the prices of the selected complementary food commodities and verify their commitment to distribute the products to each one of the food distributions centers in Cúcuta and shelters in Pamplona without transportation charge for the duration of the project. In the meanwhile, we received a quote from Super Mercados Ebenezer in Pamplona, but their prices were much higher. Initially, we projected to make 8 weekly purchases of the needed commodities. However, weekly distributions were not possible due to the time it took to receive funds from the US. Therefore, we re-scheduled the distribution to every 2-3 weeks; and added 2 more orders of complementary food commodities when the RAH distribution was extended to 26 weeks. The cost-savings and the donations received from individuals and Rotary Clubs made possible the procurement of 2 additional orders of complementary foods. At the beginning of the project, all the expenses were calculated at a rate of 2,700 COP/USD, and we were able to get a rate above 3,000 COP/USD) obtained during each transaction resulting in a considerable saving cost due to the favorable currency exchange. The list of needed complementary foods included chicken, eggs, bread, vegetables, canned tuna, oats, milk, table chocolate, and cooking oil was submitted every 2-3 weeks to the Rotary Club of Cúcuta 1 for order processing and payment.
  32. 32. 32 The Rotary Club of Cúcuta arranged the purchasing of complementary foods for the selected food distribution centers (comedores) and shelters (albergues) in Cùcuta-Pamplona every 2-3 weeks. The project staff: - Followed up after every distribution of complementary foods to confirm the quality and quantity of the products delivered in each food distribution center and shelter and requested pictures of the food received. - Verified the inventory of the complementary foods during the visits and/or verification calls, WhatsApp group chat, and only ordered the items that were needed. - Reviewed the amount of complementary foods purchased every 2-3 weeks and adjusted it according to the migration flow. In summary, we procured and distributed 10 orders of locally produced complementary food commodities for a total of 18,510 kg (approximately 21 tons) to help increase nutritional value, complement the Rise Against Hunger meals, and add diverse local flavor; support the local economy, and help decrease the xenophobia towards migrants. Contributing Rotary Clubs: Perrysburg Rotary Club, Perrysburg Rotary Service Foundation, Downtown Rotary Club of Houston, Rotary Club of Humble, Rotary Cúcuta 1, Rotary Club Karlovac-Dubovac Rotary e-Club of Houston, and River Road Elementary School. Rotarian Lorena Gloden representative of the Perrysburg Rotary Club, and Perrysburg Rotary Service Foundation, traveled to Colombia with her family to visit to food distribution centers in Cúcuta.

  35. 35. 35 A- Projected Total Beneficiaries / Week/ 26 Weeks: 400,874 This number was calculated based on the ‘Projected ‘number of beneficiaries per day as provided in the survey by each one of the food distribution centers and shelters, and does not reflect the ‘Actual’ number of beneficiaries. This number was multiplied by the number of days serving meals per week. Then, the weekly total obtained from each one of the food distribution center and shelters was added and resulted in the Projected Total Beneficiaries registered per week per 26 weeks. B- Average Number Beneficiaries / 26 Weeks: 341,575 Calculated based on data collected during weeks 1-13 and weeks 14-26. C- Actual Beneficiarie/ 26 Weeks: 221,726 Calculated based on the number of beneficiaries registered on the lists provided by the food distribution centers and shelters per week per 26 weeks. D- Variant / 26 Weeks= A-C: 179,148 Calculated based on the difference between the ‘Projected Total Number of Beneficiaries Week’ and ‘Actual Number of Beneficiary per Week’ registered on the lists per week per 26 weeks. E- Percentage of Non-Registered Beneficiaries: 64,578 Calculated at 30% based on the number of beneficiaries that did not sign the registration lists according to the shelter’s coordinators per week per 26 weeks. Most likely, the migrants did not sign due to: - Lack of dedicated volunteer to register beneficiaries - Lack of funds to hire a dedicated person to the register beneficiaries - People who were afraid to sign - People who could not sign because volunteers very occupied and the registration book was not available. - People who left without signing the registry.

Services: Serves lunch every Sunday. The Olla Comunitaria arises from the need to help the migrant families identified by Sister Ney from the Fundación Nueva Vida. Mrs. Rosalba Vera, a humble Colombian woman, generously offered her house and began cooking soup over a wood-burning stove outside the house on Sundays for families in the community. Every Sunday, a group of Colombian and Venezuelan women get together from 6:30 am to 2:00 pm to prepare, cook, and serve the food to the local vulnerable families. A family member brings her/his container or pot and is filled with a big scoop of soup per family member to take home. A problem arose when the wood fire began damaging the wall of Rosalba's house, generating so much
  39. 39. 39 smoke in the small room, which made it difficult for the volunteers to breathe. At that point, Sister Ney borrowed an industrial and kitchen and kitchen supplies from the COSPAS (Corporación de Servicio Pastoral Social de la Diócesis de Cúcuta) to make the soup in the courtyard of the house. Later on, Sister Ney searched for resources to rent a place in the same house to keep all the utensils in a designated area for the Olla Comunitaria. Sustaining this initiative is not easy due to lack of resources. Sister Ney is constantly looking for financial resources to pay the lease, buy the gas tank, cleaning supplies, and food items when donations are not available, and the maintenance of the van use to pick up donations. Additionally, there is not an economic incentive for the volunteers which make difficult to keep the same volunteer for extended periods of time.

Shelters 25-30 volunteers. Offers orientation for migrant population. The Foundation serves a diverse migration. However, the people served are mostly refugees, walkers ‘caminantes’ who are leaving Cúcuta and have limited or no resources. A group of Venezuelan refugees cook and serve the food on the premises. The Foundation provides shelter to these volunteers. The facilities of the Foundation were recently remodeled by CIRC to improve the areas of service. WCK is the primary donor of food. Sustainability is difficult since they constantly need to solicit donations to pay rent, water, electricity, maintenance, and transportation.

Services: Served breakfast, lunch & dinner every day. Sheltered 100-200 per night. Julian Galviz, the sponsor of Albergues Fundar 1 and Fundar 2, was not able to continue paying for the services, supplies, and the rent to support the shelter’s operations after the first week of Phase 2 of the project. At that point, Julian turned the shelter over to On The Ground International, a US organization contributing to the region. We meet with this organization in Pamplona and agree to continue our support. The new administration signed our Letter of Commitment and registered at the Banco de Alimentos de Pamplona. Albergue On The Ground International operated for 3 weeks. The landlord asked the On the Ground team to evacuate the space without prior notice. They searched for a new location from Pamplona to Bucaramanga and found that the community did not welcome any shelter for the migrants. Therefore, On The Ground International was forced to close the shelter on September 17, 2019. Thus, leaving unattended a very critical area on the route to the Páramo of Berlin.
