Hoping for a safe haven in Costa Rica

July 24, 2018

A Nicaraguan woman fills in refuge requests at an Immigration Office in San José, Costa Rica on July 23, 2018.

Nicaraguans have been seeking refuge in increasing numbers in Costa Rica due to the unrest taking place in their country since April.

Costa Rican Vice President and Minister of Foreign Affairs Epsy Campbell announced last week that Costa Rica has built two shelters to house Nicaraguan migrants fleeing the country’s violent political crisis.

“What’s happening in Nicaragua is unacceptable, and it’s having direct consequences on our country. The world has to focus on Nicaragua,” Campbell said.

Costa Rica asked international organizations for help in dealing with the growing crisis. Campbell said that 100 to 150 people are crossing the border daily and coming to Costa Rica for the first time.
