Dear SAI & GlobalGiving Donor,
Hospitals in Venezuela Need Your Help
Since the fall of socialized medical care in Venezuela, hospitals no longer have the money to feed and provide vital medical supplies for their patients. It is for this reason that the South American initiative has come to the rescue of neglected hospital patients by making daily deliveries of food and medical supplies. During the past month, we have provided over 8,500 meals to hospital patients in Valencia-Carabobo, Venezuela.
SAI Volunteers & Donors Local Superheroes
As you can imagine, the endless food shortages and hyperinflation have caused hospital patients to feel like they are stranded on a deserted island. By delivering a regular supply of nutritious lunches to hospital patients, SAI volunteers have become local superheroes to hungry patients in hospitals.
These meals have helped sick and malnourished hospital patients to accelerate their healing and recovery time with nutrition that is rarely available at public hospitals. The meals we provide help get the patients stronger on the road to their recovery.
SAI Staff & Volunteers Show Up With Nutritious Food
SAI’s regular deliveries of food give hungry hospital patients comfort knowing that they will not be abandoned and that no matter what happens, volunteers show up with nutritious sandwiches, clean drinking water, and fruit juices to nurture them toward good health.
SAI volunteers deliver the food directly to their bedside, courtesy of South American Initiative. Without your generous donations, these hospital patients would be living on very sparse amounts of food. Instead, they are getting nutritious foods containing vital protein, fruits, and vegetables as well as many hard to find medical supplies they need.
SAI Opens New Medical Clinic Focused on Children
We also realize that many Venezuelan children are the victims of Venezuela’s plight that we have recently sent our engineers to our headquarters to convert office space into a medical clinic. This new SAI clinic is focused on providing underprivileged children with quality medical care.
If you have any medical equipment that you would like to donate to our clinic, please contact SAI immediately and let us know how you can help. We need medical equipment, medical supplies, and over-the-counter (OTC) medicines that can be used on a daily basis at our new clinic.
SAI Helps Venezuelan Hospital Dialysis Patients
Kidney failure is very common in Venezuela. Rotten food, contaminated drinking water, and invisible toxins are causing mass kidney failure among the poor people of Venezuela. That is why dialysis has become very common for many to stay alive.
The kidneys are the natural filtering system for our blood. Once the kidneys can no longer filter the blood, it takes about eight days before death. Dialysis centers are in great demand among the most desperate people in Venezuela. That’s why SAI frequently delivers food and juice to patients undergoing dialysis. Without your donations and our help, many would not survive.
Below you will see a picture of one of our SAI volunteers delivering food to patients undergoing dialysis to filter their blood due to chronic kidney disease (CKD). The patients say we are superheroes for delivering these meals while they get their treatments.
SAI and the People of Venezuela Greatly Appreciate Your Support
The underprivileged and destitute people living through this nightmare in Venezuela have no voice or ability to cry out for help. That is why SAI works tirelessly to give them support when all other resources have abandoned them. These are people who not only want to survive, but they too want a good quality of life where they can care for their families.
SAI remains committed to providing food, medical supplies, and support to help hospital patients in Venezuela through this difficult time in the ongoing saga of their struggle. We know that you are with us too, when we receive your generous donations to support our cause of giving Venezuelans a helping hand. We thank you!
