This video, made by a friend of our ministry in July 2016, reviews the crisis in Venezuela at that time - things have just gotten worse in the year that has past. Please note: The exchange rate of 1,000 Bolivars to $1  mentioned in this video has risen as high as 18,982 in August this year. It has since gone down some but fluctuates wildy. For today’s current rate see the DolarToday website.
Since April 1, 2017 Venezuelans have been demonstrating in the streets daily against the dictatorship of Nicholas Maduro and the regime is responding with violence. In addition to tear gas being fired into the crowds and buildings, water cannons being fired at close range, and national guard using rubber bullets, recently there has been an increase in the use of metal ball bearings, marbles and other shrapnel fired with guns or loaded into tear gas canisters. In addition to many being killed (see current update in box on the right), hundreds have been arrested and jailed as political prisoners. The situation is so serious that the UN Human Rights Council held a meeting about it on June 6. (Read Ambassador Haley’s speech.)  The Organization of American states has issued several statements condemning the breakdown of democracy in the failed socialist state. President Maduro is on his way to being a full-fledged dictator. See CNN report on “How a Rich Country Collapsed.”     REPORT ON CHAVISTA ELECTION - CLICK HERE Inflation was 800% in 2016. The number of women dying in childbirth rose by 65% in 2016 and infant mortality rose by 30%. Price controlled food is still scarce and requires standing in line for hours to obtain. Food on the black market is so expensive that the average Venezuelan cannot afford it.  Medicines and medical supplies are dangerously low to non-existent. People are dying for lack of medicines. Doctors are struggling to treat the ill and those wounded during demonstrations. “Gauze is a luxury. Antibiotics are like gold dust,” says Dr Diana Lopez, a 23-year-old doctor who volunteers at the triage post. “We are practising medicine under war conditions, making do with what we have.” (The Guardian, 6/10/17) Medical students througout the country have formed an organization called la Cruz Verde (the Green Cross). These brave students go out in the streets every day, risking their lives to give emergency first aid to anyone injured in demonstrations. One of these brave students, Paul Moreno, was killed in Maracaibo on May 18 while attending to the wounded. He was the student of a good friend of ours.

Due to the current political & economic conditions in Venezuela, it has been difficult to get visas and we have not been able to travel there since.

But we are continuing to send boxes of supplies and monetary donations which are distributed by our Venezuelan branch, FUNDAMOST.

There were 163 DEATHS associated with the protests from April thru August 2017. (Wikipedia) For a more personal look at why they fight, see: “The Venezuela You Only Find  at the Protests”

Sept. 8, 2017: Months of street protests have stopped. The trickle defection of some in the military has stopped. Hugo Chavez, PSUV's founder, is God.
