Help Family Flee Venezuela

Government corruption, economic disaster, hyper-inflation, and organized crime has gripped the nation of Venezuela. People are starving, and violence is prevalent. Good families are struggling to survive. With your help, at least two of these families can be saved from these awful circumstances.

The Duque Guerra family needs $1,100 for safe passage to Peru by bus.

Emilko has recently gained passage to Peru where he is working to support his wife and children, still in Venezuela. With only $1,100, bus fare can be purchased to reunite this lovely family and escape violence, a corrupt government, and economic instability.
