Relieve the suffering in Venezuela!

$2,630 of $5,000 goal

Raised by 41 people in 9 months
Maribel Arrieta Rees  PROVO, UT
Venezuela is in the middle of a severe political and humanitarian crisis.  There is not enough food to feed the people, and many are starving.  Many only have water every 13 days, and then it is muddy and has to be purified before use.  Medical supplies are scarce and families are given lists to go out and try to find the supplies their ill family member needs. Our family and friends who live in Venezuela are in desperate need of basic food, water and supplies to survive.  We are raising funds to purchase and ship food to them.  Our entire community is pitching in, and we have already made several succesful shipments, but we need you to please open your hearts and your wallets to help us continue to help them!  Thank you!

Keep in mind that it costs about $1 or every pound of food that will be sent. The money will be used to help ship food is is being donated. Last time a 250 package cost was around $250. We hope to send as many packages as we can.

7 packages (1000 pounds of food!) arrived safely today in various destinations in venezuela. A quote from someone who just recieved food: "ya acabo de llegar de recibir tu encomienda ante todo quiero darte infinitas GRACIAS por todo lo q estas haciendo por nosotros de antemano te digo q DIOS te de muchas bendiciones q se derramen sobre tu familia, en salud que en tu mesa nunca falte los alimentos y sobre todo permanezca en tu corazon esa generosidad de compartir con otros como lo hizo nuestro Señor." (english: just now received your food package first of all I want to give infinite thanks for all q are doing for us in advance I say q God grant you many blessings q spilled on your family, health on your table never miss the food and above all to remain in your heart that generosity to share with others as did our Lord.) another quote: "De verdad muchas gracias a ti y todos los q están colaborando con esta noble misión, nunca espere esta gran sorpresa." (Really thank you very much to you and all that are working with this noble mission, never expected this big surprise. God multiply in the life, health and love)ne more: "thank you very much for your generosity. We today received the box. May the Lord bless you greatly to you and all yours for that humanitarian aid has been perfect timing for us, since we are going through difficult times, but I have faith in our Lord that everything will happen."

All six food packages have arrive to families in desperate need in Venezuela. They are all so grateful, person shared "muchas pero muchas gracias por lo que enviaron que nos ayuda mucho a todos tanto. Que dios se los multiplique". Translation - thank you so very much for what you sent that will help us so much. May God multiply it to your benefit.
