The success of the PRM-funded ASET project in Ninewa and Duhok is a testament to the importance of investing in the resilience and recovery of conflict-affected communities. By providing targeted interventions and support, the project has helped individuals to build better livelihoods, improve their income, and contribute to the wider economy. The examples of Mohammed Tahir and Wissam Youhanna in Ninewa and Abdulsalam Ahmad and Ibrahim Salih in Duhok highlight the transformative impact of the program, and provide hope for the future of these regions.

In Boa Vista, AVSI Brasil opens a multipurpose space to assist Venezuelan refugees and migrants and celebrates AVSI 50 anniversary.
Since 2016, more than 6 million people have fled Venezuela. About 5 million of them have found refuge in other countries of Latin America. The country’s oppressive political climate and worsening economic conditions has made the Venezuelan crisis one of the largest migration events in modern history.
Amid the crisis, AVSI has stepped up its work with refugees and migrants in the region, leveraging the little money available to create pathways for long-term integration and development for Venezuelans in host countries. Through the project Integrados, funded by the US Department of State Bureau of Population, Refugees and Migration, AVSI provides legal protection, housing, and livelihoods assistance for Venezuelan refugees and migrants in three regions of Ecuador: Pichincha, Manabi, and El Oro.
On March 23, Operation Welcome celebrated one year of achievements: AVSI manages four humanitarian shelters in Boa Vista, working with 32 professionals and 12 trainees, and benefiting 2,800 refugees.
