Summary

A great number of Venezuelan children are malnourished and hunger is now a frightening reality. Tens of thousands of Venezuelan citizens cross the border daily in order to find medicine and food or just to leave the country. Hyperinflation has caused severe malnutrition due to shortages of food. This project is aimed at providing food and medical supplies to the most vulnerable children and adults.

Challenge

In Venezuela, there are many people who do not have anything to eat given the high cost of food; it is extremely expensive for those living in Venezuela. Many children have died because of malnutrition as they are forced to search through garbage cans. There is a drastic shortage of medicine in the country, many adults and children have died as a result. All starving children and adults plagued by malnutrition will be able to receive food at select hospitals in the state of Carabobo, Venezuela.

Solution

We will import medical supplies to dying patients, provide malnourished children with food in select public hospitals, and provide daily meals to starving patients where current hospitals fail to provide nourishing food. Currently, many hospitals only provide rice or other non-nutritious meals that will not allow patients to recover. We will provide balanced meals including protein (meat or chicken), rice, beans, soup and vegetables.

Long-Term Impact

This project will benefit the people who visit the hospitals in the state of Carabobo, Venezuela every day. Each day, at least 400 patients in select public hospitals will be fed as a result of this project, becoming tens of thousands of possible individuals being helped. Children are dying due to preventable diseases such as diphtheria and malaria, we will provide medications to save lives.
