Since 2014, over 4 million Venezuleans have left their country and fled to bordering countries.

They are fleeing violence, economic insecurity and lack of basic services. The majority of the Venezuelans entering Ecuador are only passing by and countinuing their journey towards Peru and Chile. However, in 2018 Ecuador hosted over 256,265 displaced Venezuelans.
