Somos Encuentro, new campaign for the inclusion of refugees and migrants in Chile

It is an initiative of the International Organization for Migration (IOM) and the UN Refugee Agency (UNHCR)within the framework of Interagency Coordination Platform for Refugees Y Migrants from Venezuela (Platform R4V), which promotes messages about the importance of diversity and inclusion towards refugees and migrants in the country and which arises from two questions: what unites us? And what is it that makes us look more human?

During the last five years, Latin America and the Caribbean has been the scene of unprecedented human displacement, made up mainly of Venezuelans who left their country as a result of the political and socioeconomic situation to settle in others in the region. According to information provided by the National Institute of Statistics (INE) and the National Migration Service (formerly DEM), until December 2020, more than 448 thousand Venezuelans resided in Chile[1] [2]. In turn, according to the population estimates of R4V, Chile is the fourth host country at the regional level.[3].
