Amor for Venezuela
Artist Information and Statement
Currently, millions of Venezolanos are suffering from one of the worst humanitarian crises in Northern South America. The Venezuelan government has become more and more corrupted over the years, causing economic hyperinflation. As the costs of food products are on the rise, Venezuelans continue to fall into starvation and poverty. According to Save the Children Fund, “In Venezuela, 16 out of 100 children die of malnutrition before their 5th birthday.” Likewise, a group of researchers in the country conducted a survey in which they learned 61.2% of Venezuelans go to sleep with an empty stomach, according to El País News. This is alarming, considering that Venezuela has the largest oil reserve in the world. It is sad to see such a beautiful country with many resources and riches become ruined due to political injustice.
Amor for Venezuela is a (so far fictitious) Non-Profit organization founded by Brittany Roberts, a passionate and committed Graphic Designer in partnership with UNICEF. “My childhood years were lived in Venezuela; I consider her my adoptive country.” The social crisis in Venezuela inspires our organization to provide a better quality of life to those in need. The organization is also concerned with the voice of the people, so we created a platform to help shed light on the lives of children in Venezuela with unique stories of their everyday lives.
