Why we help
A once thriving country sitting on the world’s largest oil reserves, Venezuela has suffered a precipitous decline over the past two decades. There are drastic shortages of both food and medicines and diseases such as diphtheria and malaria are re-emerging. State hospitals, in particular, are suffering because of lack of maintenance and scarcity of medical supplies.
Healing Venezuela was registered with the Charity Commission on December 2016 with the number 1170709. We focus on three main areas: to provide medical supplies to hospitals; to implement mental health programmes and to facilitate the exchange of expertise between doctors in the UK and Venezuela. We work with well-established hospitals and NGO's in the country to make sure our efforts are properly channelled.
