Venezuela is experiencing a political and economic crisis – marked by devastating hyperinflation – that has led to severe food and medicine shortages and has driven three million people to flee their once-prosperous country since 2014.

"As good neighbors and supporters of the Venezuelan people, we are glad to be able to help, but we all know that this action is merely a short-term response, not a solution. For the sake of the Venezuelan people and the entire region, we must hope that the Maduro regime releases its crushing grip and that we see a return to democracy and to rule of law, for the sake of the Venezuelan people who deserve a peaceful, hopeful future." – Administrator Green

While the illegitimate former Maduro regime continues to deny the scale of the crisis - as well as its role in causing it - independent international organizations report dire, irrefutable findings from inside Venezuela. The Maduro regime's corruption and mismanagement have led to the destruction of Venezuelan social services and crumbling public infrastructure, contributing to the deepening humanitarian crisis. The United States is supporting our Hemispheric partners in addressing the needs of Venezuelans who have fled to the region, and stands ready to provide assistance inside Venezuela.
