2018 Annual Report

At the end of a very successful year at Healing Venezuela, we are humbled by all the support and solidarity we have received from so many of you. Too many to mention in a short email.

Achievements


In 2018 we sent 5,7 tons of medical supplies to different health institutions in Venezuela, including 9,100 diabetes strips for children, 961 intrauterine devices for pregnancy prevention and 2400 pots of baby formula. We paid for103 HIV and cancer tests for low-income patients and trained 1053 people, including children in stress management techniques.
We donated a water treatment plant for the JM de los Rios (a children’s hospital), repaired an echocardiogram in the University Hospital and donated a compressor for a dental unit.
During the second half of the year, we joined the programme “Adopt a Student” and we pay a small amount of money every month to 100 postgraduate students who commit to remain in the country for 2 years. Also, we launched a pilot with the Central University for training nurses.

Governance


We carried out a survey amongst our volunteers as well as an assessment of Venezuela’s health priorities, which allowed us to complete a strategy review.This highlighted the importance of responding to the medical emergency while also what we can to maintain and rebuild medical expertise in the country.
Funds are managed in accordance with the Charity Commission Guidelines. Every month, a Management Accountant and a Financial Reporting Accountant review our numbers and at the end of the year we are audited by an independent third party.

How We Did It


None of this would have been possible without the support and enthusiasm of many, many people. Small and large donations arrived from the most unexpected places and inspired us to continue. Runners, swimmers, dancers, cake-bakers, singers and lots of birthday girls and boys supported our work. Thousands of people in Venezuela are grateful to you all.

The Future


After strong growth in the past two years, we expect 2019 to be a year of consolidation. We will keep all our projects under review, looking always for the biggest impact and we will keep sending our quarterly Newsletters to our supporters. Needless to say, we hope you will be willing to keep supporting us and making a dent in Venezuela’s terrible health crisis.
