Taekwondo supporters from Venezuela, who suffer from the diaspora, demand that an official category be created for migrants, displaced and refugees persons.

"Warrior Hearts of Taekwondo, by Venezuelan Taekwondo Refugees."

With the initiative of the Corazones Olímpicos del Sur Foundation, called "Warrior Hearts of Taekwondo, by Venezuelan Taekwondo Refugees", we took on the task of approaching different Venezuelan athletes and they have been contacting us with their life stories from the Venezuelan Diaspora, and On many occasions his experiences touched our hearts. Very complex situations but that face with the warrior soul that have forged with the practice of this discipline.

As far as we could investigate, the phenomenon of migrants from Venezuela will increase drastically, and according to David Smolansky, who is in charge of the -OEA- to deal with the issues of Venezuelan migrants, the figure in 2018 is about 3.4 million trips, for 2019 it is expected that the figure surpasses 5 million.

The migratory movement becomes a challenge for the countries of the region, said the director of research in Latin America of Amnesty International, Carolina Jiménez Sandoval for TNT 24.

The coordinating platform for refugees and emigrants from Venezuela provides a generous information base in this regard, which highlights the figure of 375,012 refugee status requests between 2014 and 2018, in addition to the 958,965 residences granted.

In the middle of the complex panorama we find the foundation Corazones Olímpicos del Sur, which is led by a group of Venezuelan taekwondo players with a remarkable sporting experience, who after seeing what they and their compatriots were suffering from in the outside, they agreed to join forces. This is how the foundation was born.
