A Venezuelan Journey: The Search For a New Home

Towards a Better Latin America is raising funds for the UNHCR Brazil who is helping thousands of Venezuelans that are leaving their home country as a result of the political, economic and humanitarian turmoil. To many, this migration crisis is known as the “Western Syria.” They have established a fundraising goal of $10,000 to purchase shelter homes designed by the Ikea Foundation and created by Better Shelter

In this exhibit, we will give a glimpse of the current situation that many Venezuelans face as they cross the border to Brazil. Through a sensory experience, we'll explain what is happening in Venezuela, the current migration crisis, and how you can help through Towards a Better Latin America! Learn more about the event here.
