    Dire living conditions, poverty, malnutrition, documentation issues, threats from armed groups, lack of access to health care - as Coronavirus spreads through Latin America, many displaced indigenous communities are now dangerously exposed and at risk. https://t.co/EtmWM6D6UE https://t.co/yP8F8t1rXW

    “I wanted to look after my community. This is where my ill neighbors are. I don’t have a duty because seeking asylum and my refugee status is my right enshrined in international law... but I wanted to contribute by cleaning my hospital”. ?

    For refugees who've overcome trauma and experienced violence or persecution first-hand, their capacities to cope are now being stretched to the limit. Support is vital to ensure the continuity of mental health services and these must form part of national responses to COVID-19.

    #COVID is not just a physical health crisis, it's now triggering a mental health crisis among refugees grappling with confinement, isolation, discrimination + poverty. With 84% of refugees hosted in developing regions, access to quality care is limited. https://t.co/9lAuYZgjR7 https://t.co/cYnHTS9SiI

    UNHCR+ agencies call for urgent support for Venezuelan refugees and migrants as COVID-19 inflicts hardship. Lost livelihoods, hunger, poverty, evictions, stigmatization and xenophobia - many struggling to survive. Humanitarian response plan only 4% funded https://t.co/pLl00dYJLq
