Under the direction of the Humanitarian Coordinator, the Venezuela Humanitarian Fund (VHF) aims to support the timely allocation and disbursement of donor resources to the most critical humanitarian needs, as defined by the Humanitarian Response Plan (HRP). To meet this objective, the funds are allocated through an inclusive, transparent and efficient process. The allocation guidelines in the Operational Manual provide instructions and clarifications on all the steps of allocation processes and requirements in order to enhance timely and strategic decisions.
