For the many people forced to flee their homes, displacement throughout Latin America has become not just a singular experience but a recurring cycle of uncertainty.

In the face of the ongoing displacement crisis in Latin America, the International Rescue Committee (IRC) provides vital humanitarian assistance to people who need it in Guatemala and Mexico.

As part of a comprehensive regional project funded by the European Union (EU), the IRC has been delivering integrated protection services tailored to the unique context of each country. The EU-funded programmes have reached a total of 66,095 individualsin Colombia, Ecuador, Guatemala, Mexico, Peru, and Venezuela (where the IRC works through local partners) during the period spanning from May 2022 to May 2023.

On July 20th, 2023, as part of an online briefing on the Journey to Safety — Protection Needs in Guatemala and Mexico, expert panellists from the IRC and the EU discussed the displacement phenomenon in, through, and from Guatemala and Mexico.

Following the event, and based on the surveys answered by IRC programmes participants, the IRC shares key resources about the identified protection needs people encounter along the Guatemala-Mexico migration corridor.
