Watch the video here

This video documents the MPCA ‘Plus’ program implemented by Save the Children Peru in response to the Venezuelan crisis, and more specifically highlights the provision of assistance to families on the move, or ‘transiting’ through Peru. Beneficiaries were identified throughout the ‘migration’ route crossing through Peru, from the city of Piura down to Arequipa. Those indicating their willingness to settle in Peru were provided with a “settlement” MPCA assistance, while those indicating their willingness to continue travelling to reach other destinations (either inside or outside of Peru) were provided with a ‘transit’ MPCA assistance. The latter was designed to cover the costs of transportation, purchase of basic hygiene and food as well as the costs of spending a few night in hostels.
