In Venezuela, MSF provides mental healthcare to victims of urban violence. 

In collaboration with the local organisation Fe y Alegría, we offer comprehensive care for victims of sexual violence. The project is run in two of the capital’s most dangerous neighbourhoods, Petare and La Vega.

In these areas, criminal gangs use violence – including robbery, murder, extortion and kidnapping – to gain territorial control. 

Our psychologists provide individual mental health consultations, and during these sessions, they often detect and address cases of sexual violence.
