There are a lot of people working hard to help in Venezuela but, as in every country in crisis, the NGO dynamic is dicey. As a photographer, I’ve worked with several NGOs, and the ones that in my experience are really saving lives are Alimenta La Solidaridad
, a non-profit that serves lunch to children and mothers suffering from food insecurity. Their network is nationwide and they’re literally saving starving children.Plafam
provides sexual health services for lower prices to women in Caracas. I really admire the operation that Médicos Sin Fronteras (MSF) has in the mining region of Venezuela. Last but not least (and I really hope this doesn’t sound self-serving), any contribution to the free press in Venezuela, I think is a contribution to restoring our democracy. I really admire Efecto Cocuyo
, a local news site. ArmandoInfo
, also a news site dedicated to investigative journalism – they’re doing outstanding work and enduring extreme political persecution for it.
