Venezuela Crisis | Help Save a Child's Life

by South American Initiative


Venezuela is one of the most precious countries in the South American continent. Unfortunately, its economy has been affected by political disputes, causing shortages of food and medicines. The most vulnerable Venezuelans specially kids are in street conditions and many of them have died due to the impossibility of acquiring medicines. This project will aim to help those Venezuelans who do not have to eat or where to sleep.

In Venezuela there are many people who do not have anything to eat because of the high cost of food. Due to the high cost of living in Venezuela, there are many children who have died because of malnutrition and they find their food from garbage. Also, the shortage of medicines is present in the country. Many adults and children have died because they do not have access to most medications.


With the creation of this project, our foundation will be able to raise enough money to be able to provide food and medicines to those Venezuelans in a street situation and for those who are in hospitals and orphanages. We will also be able to donate the necessary tools for those Venezuelans who suffer from a disability.

Long-Term Impact

The right to health is an indisputable topic. Every human being should have good health, but unfortunately in Venezuela there are people who have died from diseases that were eradicated many years ago such as diphtheria and malaria. The children must be well fed. They are the ones who have suffered the most from this sad situation. We need the future of our country to grow on well-founded bases.
