Thousands of Venezuelan refugees fleeing their country to Brazil are facing precarious conditions in the Brazilian state of Roraima, where they have fled and struggling to find proper medical care, MSF said.

“The state of Roraima is the main gateway for Venezuelan refugees to Brazil and the number of arrivals per day is around 600 at a time of increasing influx of migrants and asylum seekers from Venezuela to Brazil has increased significantly since 2017”.

According to official figures, about 40,000 Venezuelan refugees and asylum seekers are currently living in Boavista, the capital of the state, while unofficial estimates indicate that about 100,000 migrants and refugees from Venezuela live in the state, making up about one fifth of the population of the state.

Roraima, Brazil’s northernmost state, is known for its Amazon rainforest. The capital city, Boa Vista, on the west bank of the Rio Branco, is close to the national parks of Serra da Mocidade to the southwest and Monte Roraima to the north.
