Almost 3 million migrants in Latin America in 2019

Although migrants come from different places they all have something in common: They abandoned their homes because of lack of food, work, and exposure to violence. This migration phenomenon is occurring at an incredible speed and magnitude, creating a migration crisis for Latin America and the Caribbean, the second biggest after the Syrian crisis. With migration, both source and destination face big challenges such as:  costs of additional education, health, water, early childhood, humanitarian, and employment among others.
