Study: Venezuelans have lost more than 11 kilos on average in 2017

A recent survey conducted by Venezuelan universities revealed the seriousness of the food crisis in the country, detailing the situation of starving Venezuelans.

According to the survey, 87% of Venezuelan households live in poverty. Of that percentage, slightly more than half (56%) are recently and 30% chronically poor.

The crisis in Venezuela has also degraded society to the point of becoming the most violent country in Latin America. According to the survey, in 2017 1 in 5 people were victims of a crime. In addition, 43 young people died every day because of the violence. - Panama Post

The human population of Venezuela is 31.5 million, which means that 27.4 million live in poverty.

While Maduro denies the crisis and refuses international humanitarian aid, a large number of desperate, starving Venezuelans have resorted to rummaging in the trash to feed themselves. At the same time, those who depend on medicines that are scarce are resigned to living their last days in agony.
