Crisis - Poverty causes eight million to flee from Venezuela to US
A UN report estimated in March 2019 that 94% of Venezuelans lived in poverty.
In 2023, 53% of Venezuelan households were living in extreme poverty. Inflation reached 398%.
People are exhausted by so many years of economic struggle, so there should be no surprise that so many migrants come to the USA. Our mission is to deal with their poverty.

Maibort Petit (co-founder of Freedom Voice) is an extraordinary Venezuelan, tireless fighter against tyranny, the violation of human rights, and against criminals who have used the destruction of the Venezuelan economy at the expense of the misery of our people.
I have boundless admiration for Maibort and I love her dearly.
I have known Maibort Petit for many years as a journalist. During the years of democracy in Venezuela where she was already well known for her work in doing research about the ethical behavior of people in public office. She is recognized as a serious practitioner of investigative journalism on the mismanagement of public resources.
