By 2019, roughly 221,000 Venezuelans sought refuge in cities throughout Ecuador. In Cuenca, new and existing organizations increased their capacities to meet this need, yet most refugees are unaware of their options. This project addressed the information gap by creating a resource guidebook for Venezuelan refugees. Through a parallel set of interviews with 26 Venezuelan refugees and 18 support organizations, we identified refugees' pressing needs and the support available to them. The guidebook features contact information for eight organizations that provide food, clothing, shelter, medical care, and legal support as well as a guide to obtain a visa. Printed and digital versions of the guidebook were distributed in locations refugees visit and stand to better meet their needs in Cuenca.
