Venezuela has the most rapid increase of child malnutrition and mortality in its history and that of the region.HEALING VENEZUELA has teamed up with AID FOR AIDS(AFA) in building the HEALING VENEZUELA t-shirt movement to respond to this tragedy. Infant malnutrition has catastrophic impacts, hence, we are determined to create awareness about the effects of this drastic humanitarian crisis by emphasising the fact that together we can fight this tragedy that is taking many lives, particularly those of babies, by bringing the food they need to survive.
Infants in Venezuela are born into a reality where food scarcity is the norm for everyone except for very few, putting them in an increasingly precarious state as conditions worsen daily. According to the most recent data published by a Minister of Health in Venezuela in 2016, showed that 11,446 babies less than a year old died because of malnutrition, representing a 30% increase from the year before. We know that these margins have increased drastically since 2016. According to data reported by Caritas Venezuela every week between 5 and 6 babies die in Venezuela due to malnutrition,.
Under these circumstances, our Healing Venezuela T-shirt movement is determined to create awareness about this alarming situation in Venezuela, and to fight until we put a stop to it.
Your purchase of every T-shirt will feed one baby for 30 days!
