Recently, especially in the last two months, the living conditions of the less privileged families in Venezuela have worsened significantly. The constant failure in the electricity service has been in the news worldwide. These failures also have had terrible consequences on the service of water pipe fitting in poor neighborhoods, which already was very spoiled.
The lack of potable water brought important insalubrity conditions, which means more problems for the poorest homes in Venezuela. In the last months, the amount of abandoned children in Venezuela has increased because families do not have the necessary resources to offer to their children the basic living conditions. Furthermore, the conditions in which the children arrive at our institution are very deplorable; many of them have infectious diseases because of the use of non-potable water. This situation forces us to be even more careful about the children health; we must take care of the new children that arrive with these health problems, but also the health of the children that were already living in our houses, we need to prevent the infectious disease to spread to others. We must take sick children to the hospital to receive medical attention, and obtain the medicines and antibiotics they need, which in most cases are difficult to find and the prices are very high.
Thus, we thank all our supporters that through GlobalGiving and this project help us to get the necessary economic means to obtain the medicines and to take care of the healthcare of the kids, so we can achieve the best health for our children.
