Venezuela has been a place of poverty and political dismay for years now, and there's only signs of it getting worse. People don't have enough food, water, medicine, the hyperinflation makes it impossible to save up anything meaningful to escape from there. Those lucky enough with relatives in other countries or desperate enough to cross dangerous borders and hope for the best are fleeing the country every single day. Recently, there was a nationwide blackout in all of Venezuela, causing the country to go into even more chaos. Hundreds died in hospitals, people starved and couldn't find potable water. Looters destroyed every store they could find. The country is on the brink of a civil war and the economic situation just gets worse and worse. I'm Kyle, from the UK, and my girlfriend lives there with her family. They have had enough, but they don't have the means to get out. I definitely don't want them to take the cheap, dangerous option of trekking across awful borders and hoping for the best. No one should be this scared in their own country. The money I need is just to get them out of there and make sure they have enough to live for a few months whilst they sort out a place to live and work, and the flights to get there so they can avoid any unnecessary dangers. This would be flights for 4 people and a baby, a place to live, living costs (food/bills/internet/phone). I will be withdrawing the money to my own bank account and then sending that off to her Auntie who has an account in US dollars. If I can’t raise enough money to get them out of there, I would atleast like to make life easier until they can do it themselves. This would involve buying an electric plant that will give them some access to power when the power is down, helping them pay for a water truck to refill the water tank in their house, passport payments, food, etc. No one sees my girlfriend like I do, they just see her as another person, and that's okay. But she's a beautiful person, inside and out, with so much potential. She's kind, considerate, selfless. She also has a baby sister who has experienced nothing other than this awful environment. None of them deserve to live like this and have their safety and well-being taken from them because they live in a society near impossible to escape from. Any donations will mean so much to me and i'll forever owe you. I just want what's best for her. The sooner I can get the funds, the better. It's scary to think of what could happen if I don't get them out of there.
