Venezuela is a country that is in a state of total collapse currently surviving, yes SURVIVING under a repressive regime.
Did you know that 85% of Venezuelans only eat twice a day?
Did you know that Venezuelans have reportedly lost 19 pounds on the average from the effects of rationed food, scarcity and the collapse of the economy in just one year?
Did you know that 8 out of 10 medicines are not available in Venezuela?
Did you know that 7 out of 10 kids are not able to go to schools because their parents cannot give them food to take to school nor the school has food to give them?

We are two Venezuelan sisters wanting to help our native country (We keep ZERO from donations) all donations go towards the purchase of food, basic necessity items and shipping to Venezuela. We make sure that all our donations reach those who need it the most, and we share pictures as proof. If you feel more comfortable donating items instead of cash, please contact us via private message to send your donations.

Thank you for reading this, and even if you cannot help today, share this information with others, Help bring awareness to the human rights violations in Venezuela.

The donations to our site have slowed down a lot, but we continue to help when we can, we have been buying food in Venezuela, super high prices for locals but for us is still cheaper than buy it here and we save in shipping costs.

Today my cousin drove around to find people looking to eat anything from the garbage, we gave them a bag with beans, rice, tuna, harina pan, they always smile and say God Bless you.

We wish we could do more of course, we will keep trying no matter what. Thank you so much for helping Venezuela.

‪This child was outside a restaurant begging for food. We were able to give him a bag with food with the donations we have received. Thanks for donating to HelpingVenezuela.com ‬

Hi my friends! Since our cash donations have decreased, (especially food and items donations)we have decided to try a different method by attempting to buy food in Venezuela to see if we can save money. Of course finding food there is extremely difficult, and if found it's expensive for Venezuelans but not so much for us in $, the only way to get a better price is by purchasing large quantities of the same item at a time, but we think if we save some money in the shipping we are able to provide perhaps a little more food and the long wait of shipping is also reduced. We got rice, beana, pasta, and flour. Here are pics of our recent purchase from a trustworthy seller. We will be handing them out this weekend God willing.

What is happening to all the abandoned animals? Are they being taken to a shelter or are they being left to fend for themselves?

How incredibly hard is to be a Venezuelan in a foreign land these days. Every day, to day, you must fake a smile, and pretend everything is normal, pretend that nothing is happening, but behind all that in your heart and in your mind, you are so worried, suffering with anguish, with the nerves at the end of it all, totally devastated, looking at your cell and Facebook, twitter, WASSUP, Instagram, the only media reporting the truth about our families, friends, and people being murdered on the streets by the Cuban government. One cannot stop to think about our families, our friends, our country. We are neither there not here. USA cares only about Syrians, and do not even know that 126% of all asylums in the USA are actually from Venezuela. USA does not even care as long as Venezuela BLOOD oil is providing them with gasoline for their cars, plastics…HEY THAT ZIPLOC bag you used today has Venezuelan blood on it! That IPHONE you are using has plastics from Venezuelan BLOOD! Maybe if Venezuela did not provide so many riches, people will actually care more for Venezuelans than they do for Syrians. Oil refineries will blend various feedstocks, mix appropriate additives, provide short term storage, and prepare for bulk loading to trucks, barges, product ships, and railcars. • Gaseous fuels such as propane, stored and shipped in liquid form under pressure in specialized railcars to distributors. • Liquid fuels blending (producing automotive and aviation grades of gasoline, kerosene, various aviation turbine fuels, and diesel fuels, adding dyes, detergents, antiknock additives, oxygenates, and anti-fungal compounds as required). Shipped by barge, rail, and tanker ship. May be shipped regionally in dedicated pipelines to point consumers, particularly aviation jet fuel to major airports, or piped to distributors in multi-product pipelines using product separators called pipeline inspection gauges ("pigs"). • Lubricants (produces light machine oils, motor oils, and greases, adding viscosity stabilizers as required), usually shipped in bulk to an offsite packaging plant. • Paraffin wax, used in the packaging of frozen foods, among others. May be shipped in bulk to a site to prepare as packaged blocks. • Slack wax, a raw refinery output comprising a mixture of oil and wax used as a precursor for scale wax and paraffin wax and as-is in non-food products such as wax emulsions, construction board, matches, candles, rust protection, and vapor barriers. • Sulfur, byproduct of sulfur removal from petroleum, which contain percent of organosulfur compounds. • Bulk tar shipping for offsite unit packaging for use in tar-and-gravel roofing or similar uses. • Asphalt - used as a binder for gravel to form asphalt concrete, which is used for paving roads, lots, etc. An asphalt unit prepares bulk asphalt for shipment. • Petroleum coke, used in specialty carbon products such as certain types of electrodes, or as solid fuel. • Petrochemicals or petrochemical feedstocks. Petrochemical are organic compounds that are the ingredients for the chemical industry, ranging from polymers and pharmaceuticals. Representative petrochemicals are ethylene and benzene-toluene-xylenes ("BTX").
