According to a report by Doctors Without Borders (MSF), nearly 400 migrants, mostly women, have experienced sexual violence while crossing the dangerous Darien Gap between Panama and Colombia. The situation has worsened in recent months, with 97% of the victims being women. In October alone, there were 59 cases of sexual violence reported. The Darien Gap, despite its dangers, has become a major route for migrants hoping to reach the United States. Many victims do not speak out due to fear of stigmatization, reprisals, or delays in their journey.
