Grassroots Support for Venezuelans in Colombia
In January 2018, Marta began opening her home to Venezuelan refugees. One year and three months later, she and her team of four Venezuelans are serving 250-300 meals a day.
The most desperate Venezuelan refugees cross the border with absolutely nothing, not even $30 that would buy them an 18-hour bus ride to the capital, Bogota. Left with no other option, they walk.

La Posada de Esperanza is in the tiny village of La Corcova, population less than 200. The shelter has a one-night limit and hosts around 120 Venezuelans every night.
