ACTED Colombia - Venezuela

For the past few decades Venezuela has been affected by a multi-dimensional crisis, affecting access to WASH, sanitation and hygiene, protection, health and food security-related services. Amazonas has also been weakened by the Venezuelan crisis, which has led to product shortages, service failures and severe economic difficulties. One of the major consequences of this crisis is the high mobility of people, which increases the vulnerability of the population, particularly women, as they are exposed to risks of violence, trafficking, or insecurity along migratory routes. Since 2022, Acted works in the Amazon region of Venezuela, to strengthen protection mechanisms to improve access to water and livelihoods for the most vulnerable indigenous communities. The Base Manager will work in this context, liaising with NGOs, local authorities and ensuring the effective implementation of the project in a fast growing and vibrant humanitarian scenario.
