Venezuela Crisis: Christian Group to The Rescue.
The crisis facing Venezuela presently has been rated the biggest economic crisis in mordern history and mass migration, starvation and deaths, have been triggered by hyperinflation.
The U.S. has promised to diliever hundreds of tons of food, medicine and supplies to President Juan Guaido led administration, but may not arrive earlier that a month.
The humanitarian gesture of the United States became necessary due to Nicolas Maduro’s refusal to hand over power, coupled with threats of instigating violence, yet, for a long time restricting foreign aid to the country.
But for the timely intervention of World Help, a Christian humanitarian aid group, malnourished Venezuelans would have had to live wihout basic supplies until March.
WH through insiders who know how to get food and supplies to families under Maduro’s strong hold is already assisting in getting aid materials across to families.
US congressman. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., had last month enjoined the Venezuelan military to lift restrictions on foreign aid and let them in when they arrive. “Military and police leaders in Venezuela must now decide to either help food and medicine reach people, or help Maduro instead,” Rubio wrote on Twitter.
President Trump reiterated in an interview with CBS on Sunday that sending U.S. troops to Venezuela could be “an option.”
The political unrest is creating a humanitarian crisis. Observers on the ground said it’s the greatest humanitarian crisis in the world right now,” said Vernon Brewer, founder of World Help, in an interview with The Christian Post about the organization’s work and ways Americans can help. “The electricity is cut off on a daily basis. There’s food and medicine shortages; the plunging price of oil. And then you add to that the political upheaval has left the nation in turmoil.
Many Venezuelans and political leaders around the world believed that Maduro’s re-election in May was fraudulent. On Jan. 23 Guaido, who’s head of the country’s opposition party which controls the National Assembly, was sworn in as the legitimate interim leader of Venezuela.
The U.S., E.U., and most countries in the Americas have recognized Guaido as Venezuela’s legitimate leader. Bolivia, Russia and Cuba still support Maduro’s socialist regime, and China issued a statement last month opposing any foreign intervention.
