It has been 22 years taking care of the most vulnerable kids in Venezuela, 22 years providing all their physical, educational, recreational and even emotional and affective needs. In today´s Venezuela, it is harder every day to achieve this task completely. It is widely known the worsening economic situation that lessen our local incomes from contributions that used to allow us to achieve our goals, also and at the same time this situation has had an impact on the increasing number of children coming to our institution and of people asking for help. The number of abandoned children because of lack of resources in the family is inconceivable and painful. Thus, Global Giving has become an essential and very useful tool to the international fundraising activities of our institution allowing us to be present in an important and recognized platform with a worldwide presence and that help us to spread our cause too many more people around the world.

We have 120 children and teenagers in our houses towards whom we are committed and responsible for, therefore we are grateful to Global Giving for the space that they offer to us and for all the contributions we have received from our donors.

As the Venezuelan crisis increases, so do the challenges Hogar Bambi faces every day. Today we are supporting 120 children in our 4 houses, and we are expanding to attend more children every day.

The strong socio-economic problems in our country make it difficult to obtain food, medicines and the basics supplies needed to keep a child healthy so that there are many cases of child abandonment. Bambi faces these challenges with courage and a lot of dedication and thanks to the contributions we receive, we can provide shelter and comprehensive care to those children that need it the most.

This year the possibility to obtain contribution from national companies or individual has been very difficult, so we are increasingly counting on the support we can obtain from platforms like GlobalGiving that allow us to get closer to people with a deep sense of responsibility and altruism that feel pleasure helping Bambi to achieve its mission. Day by day, it is more important and essential for us each aid received from abroad, so we deeply and sincerely thank everyone that contributes to our cause.

In the harsh reality of the country in which we live today, we have seen and felt the violation of the fundamental rights of children, the great absence of food, medicines, a deterioration in the quality of life that is increasing, indicators of malnutrition in general that are worrying. The socioeconomic situation in our country is really disastrous.

In Hogar Bambi Venezuela, we continue making a great effort to guarantee and restore the fundamental rights of 120 children and adolescents. Thanks to the contributions we receive, we can invest in their diet, health, education, and with this work, offer them a better quality of life. Unfortunately, with a galloping inflation like the current one, resources are exhausted soon; this leads us to the constant search for favorable alliances for our programs.

We hope to continue counting on your support and making the lives of children and adolescents belonging to our institution less difficult.

Hogar Bambi Venezuela continues to be at the forefront of the protection and comprehensive care of children at risk. Thanks to the kindness of various contributions, we were able to expand our enrollment to 120 children and adolescents (NNA). This broadens our commitments in the search for resources to maintain the care programs that our children deserve, with a rising inflation rate, the absence or difficult access to basic services (food, health, medicines, education), a political situation extremely complex and a human reality deprived that diminishes the quality of life of any citizen, increasing the precariousness in the most vulnerable homes and with it the increase of abandonment. Unfortunately, the amount of companies and people that contribute to the development of our programs have decreased considerably. Each and every one of the difficult situations that the country is going through, initiates new organizational challenges in order to continue making great efforts to achieve the necessary resources.

This year we have an enrollment in formal education of seventy children and the rest of children over two years, receive a pedagogical initiation according to their age. Also thanks to the educational strengthening programs, all of our children and adolescents are served by education professionals, providing accompaniment and reinforcement in the areas where they most require it.

The current situation in Venezuelan presents a multitude of challenges that negatively impact the quality of life of every family in the country. These challenges are particularly acute among vulnerable and disadvantaged families.

These adverse conditions have a direct effect on early childhood development as children are those most affected by food and medicine shortages currently gripping Venezuela.

As a result, requests for children to be placed under our care is growing at a rapid pace as families simply cannot meet the basic needs of their children. We have also seen an alarming increase in the number of abandoned babies and children as families are unable to overcome the challenges presented by the nationwide scarcity of basic goods.

As a result, Hogar Bambi Venezuela faces a very complex situation.

Part of our mission is to offer a provisional shelter program for children and adolescents that upholds their fundamental rights and restores their health and social, psychological, educational, and nutritional wellbeing. As an institution, we strive to find greater resources to expand our operational capacity and better meet the growing needs of those under our care.

As scarcity and inflation in Venezuela continue to worsen, the assistance we once received from individuals has declined markedly. This complex reality forces us to look for financial support outside our country. A great effort has been made to ensure that our little ones have everything they need. However, we must redouble our efforts to guarantee we can provide the highest level of attention our children deserve, focusing on the search for food, medicine and other basic goods.

Despite current uncertainty in Venezuela, there are still people who want to help. It is through this generosity that we have been able to acquire a fifth home to continue to protect children at risk. We must now focus on finding the resources to equip this new house to meet the needs of the children that will call it home.

The situation in Venezuela is highly complex and requires great cooperation and contributions from generous individuals. This assistance allows us to continue providing shelter to our children, who are unwitting victims of a society in crisis. We count on you.
