France responded to UNHCR's call to improve the conditions of more than 1 million refugees and migrants from Venezuela who have arrived in Colombia, in search of protection and access to decent living conditions. The European country donated USD 500,000 to respond to the needs of Venezuelans in Colombia. Jozef Merkx, Representative of UNHCR in Colombia, met with the Ambassador of France in the country, Gautier Mignot, in order to analyze the situation faced by the Venezuelans who cross the borders daily.
