We delivered food to 5 organizations in Venezuela in 5 different cities: Maturin, Caracas, Zulia, Valencia and Barquisimeto. We published 20 stories and four videos highlighting positive stories to combat the negative portrayal of the country in mainstream media. In 2019, we partnered with Feeding Smiles to cover medical and food expenses for eight low-income patients, including cancer treatments and surgeries.
We decided to shift our model away from humanitarian aid to community development. We believe by supporting impactful community projects we can become a more sustainable organization and help build stronger communities for the future of Venezuela.

Through this work, we hope to see a 180-degree shift in Venezuela from a country of extreme crisis to a country of extreme opportunity. We envision empowered people building stronger communities for the future of Venezuela.
