Since August 2017, Plan International Peru has been providing humanitarian assistance to children who have migrated to the country from Venezuela.
In order to keep these children safe we set up the ‘Plan of Joy’ which is a safe space where children can play and receive emotional support to help them overcome the hardships they have experienced. These spaces are also used to share information with children that will help prevent them from experiencing violence.
The Plan of Joy is located in Tumbes and is run alongside partner organisation UNICEF. It will allow children to exercise their rights to protection and play while their parents get their family settled in their new country. It is expected that the Plan of Joy will benefit over 4,000 migrant children.
