Shelter provides life-saving aid to people fleeing to Ecuador to save their lives
Sandra Patricia* shares the reasons why she fled Colombia with her daughter and how the assistance they have received at the shelter has helped them in starting a new life in Ecuador.
The first place at which people fleeing violence arrive is a shelter on the border between Ecuador and Colombia.
With support from UNHCR and funding from the European Union, this shelter helps hundreds of people find a safe place for them to rebuild their lives.
