Venezuelans are dying. Sign now!
The Venezuelan people are dying due to a lack of medical treatment. This urgent petition asks the United Nations and the World Health Organization to create a humanitarian corridor to save the Venezuelan people.
The deadly Chávez regime has held power in Venezuela for 20 years. Now, the lethal regime has led to the total ruin of the country... a country with the largest reservoirs of oil on the planet!
All of this is thanks to Venezuela's nefarious administration, whose ideological basis is communism or 'the socialism of the 21st century'.
Who pays for the consequences for this disastrous regime? Not the leaders of the government, such as President Nicolás Maduro or well-known politician Diosdado Cabello, who have luxurious apartments in New York. And certainly not the daughter of Hugo Chávez, who has a fortune valued at 3.6 billion USD by Forbes.
Hugo Chávez's daughter has access to 3.6 billion dollars... and people in Venezuela are dying of hunger and suffering due to the lack of basic medical services! Venezuelans have to stand in long lines to get so much as a roll of toilet paper.
The situation is dangerous and unsustainable, but the international community has thus far remained idle. The humanitarian emergency in Venezuela is no longer making prime time news, and it has therefore fallen out of interest for international institutions.
Here are some important facts about the situation in Venezuela:
- The average monthly salary in Venezuela is about 5,916,000 bolivares (Bs) or $34.30USD. Some of the medicines they need to import cost over $3,800USD.
- In 88% of the hospitals, there are no drugs available. In 79%, there are no sanitary materials and water cuts are a constant occurrence.*
- 30% of doctors with more than 30 years of experience, and 75% with ten years or less of experience, have left the country.*
- 90% of treatments for diseases such as cancer, AIDS, or hemophilia are not available.
- From January to May of this year, the price of drugs tripled from 1,000% to 3,000% of the cost before the crisis.**
- Most importantly, 16,000 people are at risk of imminent death. The number increases every day.
With these facts in mind, we are asking the United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA) and the World Health Organization (WHO) to intercede and immediately create a humanitarian corridor to ensure the supply of medicine and basic sanitary material.
This must be done to save the people of Venezuela. The suffering and mistreatment of the Venezuelan people should be considered crimes against humanity.
Write to the United Nations and the World Health Organization to make them aware of the extremely delicate situation in Venezuela. Ask them to immediately establish a humanitarian corridor for the entry of medicines and sanitary material to help the battered population.
