With the civil unrest in Venezula, is it estimated that over 800,000 refugees have fled and crossed the border into Colombia.  Near Cúcuta, Colombia, there is a refugee camp, and the Erasmus Meoz Hospital provides medical care for the pregnant moms and their babies, plus women and children in the area.
