Third Quarterly Report 2021

MEDICAL SUPPLIES

During Q3, medical supplies were distributed to 11 centres in different regions of Venezuela. In total, 197kg of supplies were donated, which in terms of dosage (using WHO Defined Daily Dose) corresponds to 36,069 doses. Additionally, 30 kits for laparoscopy were sent to the University of Los Andes Hospital, a public hospital in Merida state, where we also sponsor 40 junior doctors. In total during the last quarter, 2077 people benefited from our medical supplies donation programme.

FOOD PROGRAMME

Healing Venezuela's food programmes in two schools in La Vega (Caracas) and Guaraunos Village (Sucre State) continued during Q3 benefitting more than 250 families with children at risk of malnutrition. Around 67,650 meals were delivered in these communities with the added positive impact of incentivising school attendance.

JUNIOR DOCTORS

As part of our medical skills retention programme, we are currently sponsoring 140 junior doctors in 8 hospitals across the country. Also, to give access to up-to-date scientific information we donated to University Hospital a text: Fitzpatrick's Dermatology latest edition for dermatology students.

INFRASTRUCTURE

Hospitals' infrastructure has seriously deteriorated in Venezuela. This is why one of our key programmes is to donate/repair critical equipment. During Q3, we repaired two fridges for proteins' storage at the Vargas Hospital that had been damaged for more than a year. We also kept maintaining the water treatment plants that we have installed in hospitals' kitchens to keep providing potable water to thousands of people.

FAMILY PLANNING

One of the many consequences of the lack of medical supplies in Venezuela is a dramatic increase in pregnancy-related mortalities.  Particularly affected are teenagers with an increase of 75% in mortality rates. Since 2018, we at Healing Venezuela have been sponsoring a programme working with a local NGO to support women with their family planning journey. During Q3, 362 women, including  51 teenagers benefitted from it.

HOW WE DID IT

The last few months have been very challenging for Healing Venezuela as for any other NGO.  The situation in Venezuela has not improved and the COVID19 pandemic has put a lot of strain on small charities like ours. In order to keep operating, we had a series of initiatives from selling T-shirts with Venezuelan motives to a virtual challenge on the Venezuelan Andes.

SPECIAL EVENTS

As part of our commitment to support the Venezuelan community in the UK, during Q3 we organised a virtual pop-up for entrepreneurs who are part of our BuyVenezuelan programme. During the event, vendors could showcase their products and services and then donated a small percentage of their sales to Healing Venezuela.
Particularly proud made us being nominated to 2 Charity Times Awards: Charity of the Year and Best Social Media Presence!
