Trinidad: Venezuelan Refugee emergency Living Water coordinator calls for protection of migrants

WITH thousands of refugees in TT, the majority from neighbouring Venezuela, this country is facing an emergency. But in this emergency there is also the opportunity for national development and for the protection of basic human rights despite what laws exist.

These are the views of Rochelle Nakhid, coordinator of the non-governmental organisation Living Water Foundation’s Ministry for Migrants and Refugees. Living Water is an implementation arm of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR).

The issue of refugees has been in the news of late with the protest by a group of Cuban refugees.
