Venezuela is experiencing a humanitarian crisis

There are food, water, and medicine shortages as well as nationwide power outages

We need your help to support Venezuelans during this period of political turmoil and instability


Venezuela has the largest exodus in the world, after Syria

The Colombian-Venezuelan border is at a breaking point as Venezuelans are fleeing their homeland in search of opportunities elsewhere. The UN estimates that up to two millions may attempt to leave Venezuela this year alone
