Church providing advice and support to migrants


When hundreds of migrants from Venezuela began arriving in Guyana in 2018, the Catholic Church was part of the Venezuela Support Group (VSG). This group was launched by a number of civic and faith-based organisations in Guyana, to provide advice and support to Venezuelans seeking refuge from the deprivations and insecurity currently gripping their homeland.

A Catholic Standard report highlighted that at present, the Catholic Church, through its Diocesan Projects Office and in collaboration with a number of international agencies, continues to run a number of projects to provide various forms of assistance to benefit hundreds of Guyanese and Venezuelan migrants, mainly in Regions 1, 2, 4 and 7.
