Second day for Angelina in Peru

As usual when Angelina is visiting countries in her role as an UNHCR Special Envoy, she has a busy schedule and she tries to do as much as possible. On October 22nd, she went to the city of Tumbes in the district of Corrales, where she visited an shelter run by the mothers of Santa Ana where Venezuelan women and children are cared for who left their country due to the crisis. After this she went to a meeting at the Plaza Mayor de Tumbes Help Center in Tumbesm which is also a place to assist the Venezuelan refugees who have just arrived in Peru.

After these two visits she also went to the Binational Border Care Center (Cebaf), where there are about 3,500 Venezuelans waiting to enter Peru.

The UN has asked Angelina Jolie to Peru to assess the situation of refugees venezuelans, has announced the High Commissioner for refugees, several local media indicating that she had arrived on Sunday in Lima.

As a goodwill ambassador for the united nations High Commissioner for refugees (UNHCR), the hollywood star will conduct “a three-day mission to assess the humanitarian needs of refugees venezuelans”, who are fleeing en masse the economic crisis in their country, “and the challenges facing Peru, as host country,” according to a press release from the UNHCR.

According to an estimate of Lima, 456.000 Venezuelans currently residing in Peru, compared to 6,000 in 2016.

According to the united nations, 2.3 million Venezuelans (or 7.5% of them) live abroad, of which 1.6 million have emigrated since 2015, when the shortages of food and medicine have worsened, in parallel to the hyperinflation. Inflation is expected to reach 1.350.000% this year, according to the IMF.

UNHCR Special Envoy Angelina Jolie is carrying out an official visit to Peru this week. Peru is one of the countries most affected by the surge in Venezuelan refugees and migrants – the largest movement of people in Latin America’s recent history.

Following up on the UN High Commissioner for Refugees recent visit to the region, Jolie is undertaking a three-day mission to assess the humanitarian needs of Venezuelan refugees and the challenges facing Peru as a host country, and to discuss the possible regional responses to the crisis.
