Searching for Agua in Venezuela
The situation in Venezuela remains dire, with malnutrition, hyperinflation, and limited access to stable jobs affecting the population. In the midst of these challenges, the Hope Center in Barquisimeto, Venezuela is committed to rescuing children from malnutrition and social risk while providing educational support. However, the center faces its own set of challenges in securing resources and funding for their incredible work.
At the Hope Center in Venezuela, a greenhouse and a farm with pigs and chickens have been established to provide food for the children. Unfortunately, the lack of access to water prevents them from utilizing all their land and maximizing their potential. The center is in desperate need of funding to dig a well and address this critical issue.
In this short video below, Luis Rea, our Director in Venezuela, shares an update on the efforts to locate water and the importance of this project for the Hope Center and the children it serves.

Your generous contributions can make a lasting impact on the lives of these children and help them build a brighter future.

A Community Born Out Of Tragedy
In December 1999, Venezuela was devastated by the Vargas Tragedy. The mountains softened up and broke off like crumbled cookies, releasing about twenty million cubic feet of rocks and mud over the towns. This natural disaster of massive flooding killed tens of thousands completely erasing entire cities and led to the complete collapse of the state’s infrastructure. Three days of torrential rains left an estimated 190,000 people displaced, and they were relocated into mass government housing throughout the country. An area just outside of the city of Barquisimeto, west of Caracas, became home to over 5,000 families creating one of the worst slums in Venezuela.
