Thousands of people are forced to leave their homes every day and embark on dangerous routes. No matter how uncertain the journey is, a better life is all they hope for. Every year, 500,000 people migrate to from neighbouring countries in Central America.

Sexual violence in war is a crime. Justice must be made available to every single survivor who wishes to seek it. We demand a change in the attitudes that blame the survivors of sexual and gender-based violence, not the perpetrators. More must be done!
