Get Litoh out of Venezuela

Living conditions in Venezuela are getting worse by the day. People have no access to basic services and struggle every day to put together enough to stay fed. With no end in sight this situation will only get worse. The only option for most Venezuelans is to leave the country in search of opportunity elsewhere. 

Your donation can help Litoh purchase plane tickets for himself, his mother and his little sister. They have friends and family in Dominican Republic who can provide assistance with finding living arrangements and employment once he arrives. Litoh's family holds dual citizenship in Dominican Republic so he will be eligible to start seeking employment as soon as he arrives.

Detailed Expenses

Air fare from Caracas, Venezuela (Litoh's home) to Punta Cana, Dominican Republic ranges from $600 to $1000USD per person. The total for three tickets would range from $1800 to $3000.

On average, people in Dominican Republic live on approximately $1000 per month. This includes rent, transportation, and food. Moving to a new country without a job secured can be very risky and has the potential to leave one in a worse situation than they left. With enough money to cover basic living expenses for a couple of month, Litoh and his family will be able to secure their future in a more stable environment. At our $5000 goal and after air fare is paid there will be between $2000 and $3200 available to cover these expenses. This will provide 2-3 months of stability.

Distribution of Funds

With many institutions in Venezuela failing it is important to provide Litoh with donations through a secure network. We have arranged to purchase air fare on Litoh's behalf and transfer the remaining donations through PayPal.
