The situation of vulnerable families in El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras and Nicaragua is somewhat unique in the humanitarian context in that a combination of factors—such as poverty, violence, food insecurity, and criminal actvity—create forced displacement rather than the acute impact of a natural disaster or conflict. Known as “other situations of violence,” the conditions in the northern triangle and Mexico present what some experts regard as new causes for displacement that expand protection needs, particularly among the growing number of women and girls and among unaccompanied and separated children. Those who flee often lack protection and face dire circumstances, including recruitment into criminal gangs, sexual and gender-based violence, and murder. In addition we continue to be committed to serving vulnerable and disadvantaged people in rural areas by providing more meals and vitamins for thousands of children, women and elderly.
