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
