ALLEVIATE POVERTY AND SUFFERING AROUND THE WORLD.

VENEZUELA RELIEF PROJECT.

VENEZUELA — “One of the richest countries in Latin America, with the largest reserves of oil and other minerals, is now among the poorest countries in the world."   

With the greatest reserve of land and water, now its people are starving and many of them are in garbage dumps looking for food to eat. There is no production of basic food or of livestock because of the misuse of the land. 

Venezuela was a country where people lived adequate lifestyles, it now has the largest inflation in the world. According to the latest figures of the central bank of the country, it is estimated Venezuela will reach inflation of 10,000,000% by the end of 2019. 

THE PROBLEM.

Venezuela was a country where people lived adequate lifestyles, it now has the largest inflation in the world. According to the latest figures of the central bank of the country, it is estimated Venezuela will reach inflation of 10,000,000% by the end of 2019. 

In Venezuela people are dying of hunger, there are no medicines for hospitals, many people die due to lack of treatments ... public services have collapsed. 

 

Venezuela, in the past,  produced almost four million barrels of oil per day, now it does not reach half a million and most of it is compromised. Fuel is hard to come by. People have to line up for up to three days to fill up. The cars are deteriorating and there are no spare parts because they are very expensive.   

 

 People are experiencing dangerous levels of depression and are losing hope. Those that can leave are fleeing to neighbouring countries to try and find jobs to be able to send money back to their families. 

 

At this moment there are almost six million Venezuelans out of the country that has left in the last years. This has created a new refugee crisis, much like what we have seen in Syria and other countries. 

 

What the country is living in is the greatest tragedy a nation can experience. The Venezuelan people had everything and didn’t leave the country. Now they live with the memory of what they have lost, many as refugees in a foreign country. 

OUR HELP.

One way our organization helps alleviate crisis is through “Soup of Love,” a project located in San Fernando de Apure, Venezuela. This project allows us to provide a meal for those experiencing starvation. 42 volunteers are mobilized per month and can feed approximately 350 to 400 people. Project expenses include ingredients, COVID-19 protective equipment, cooking utensils, and gasoline for travel.

"The purpose of Soup of Love is to help alleviate the hunger of many people in need by giving around 2,400 people one plate of soup and an Arepa (kind of bread) once a week".
