The Human Rights Watch Organisation declared: “In Venezuela, severe shortages of medicines, medical supplies, and food have intensified since 2014, and weak government responses have undermined Venezuelans’ rights to health and food. Security forces have arbitrarily detained and tortured protesters, and raids in low-income communities have led to widespread allegations of abuse. Other persistent concerns include poor prison conditions and impunity for human rights abuses”.

All funds collected will be used to buy first aid materials and medicines and will be delivered directly to a group of medical students at the Venezuela’s Central University which has the main Medicine Department and the biggest and most important public hospital of the country.
