What we aim to solve

Venezuela is going through a deep humanitarian crisis. Due to the severe shortage of food, medicine and medical supplies, and the intensification of the crisis due to the hyperinflation in which the nation has been since the end of 2017, it is extremely difficult for Venezuelans to obtain essential medical attention. UNICEF estimates that 1 in 3 children need humanitarian assistance in the country. Along with this fact, and because of the lack of access to medicines and medical assistance centers, infant mortality in Venezuela has increased by 50% between 2014 and 2017; rural areas and indigenous communities are the worst affected by malnutrition and lack of medical care and medical supplies.The extension of the crisis is not only limited food shortages and lack of medicine and the acquisitive power of people, but extended to the null presence of medication and doctors or nurses in the country in general.

Receive financial or in-kind donations of necessary supplies requested, in a gradual and continuous form. Increase the reach of people and communities assisted. Reduce the number of victims of malnutrition, diseases and lack of medical assistance in Venezuela. Strengthen relationships between social organizations to ensure project continuity.

Ensure the integral development of the indigenous children in the areas of education, culture, health and sports through programs applied in schools and communities of the most vulnerable populations. The teaching staff, social workers and doctors work directly in the schools and communities where the foundation makes continuous presence to verify and monitor that the programs are carried out in their entirety. The staff and volunteers are present in the schools of the Municipality Mara, Jesús Enrique Losada and Guajira to ensure the food and medicine provided by the foundation and to serve the most vulnerable populations. The mobilization and transfer goes hand in hand with the volunteers and collaborators of the Wayuu Taya Foundation. Currently, an average of 12000 people receive direct attention, distributed in 29 schools and 16 communities and 7 Institutions.

Organizational Demographics

In order to support nonprofits and gain valuable insight for the sector, GuideStar worked with D5—a five-year initiative to advance diversity, equity, and inclusion in philanthropy—in creating a questionnaire. This section is a voluntary questionnaire that empowers organizations to share information on the demographics of who works in and leads organizations. To protect the identity of individuals, we do not display sexual orientation or disability information for organizations with fewer than 15 staff. Any values displayed in this section are percentages of the total number of individuals in each category (e.g. 20% of all Board members for X organization are female).
