A Double-Edged Sword: Protection Risks Facing Venezuelan Children During the COVID-19 Pandemic

World Vision

This report examines the two-sided dilemma for Venezuelan children during the COVID-19 pandemic: 1) the dire economic situation they faced prior to the declaration of the Coronavirus pandemic and 2) the exacerbating factors that have deepened their vulnerability since the pandemic began. World Vision’s intent is to equip leaders and decision makers with insights and recommendations for actions that will comprehensively prevent and address children’s protection concerns.
