Venezuelans give away their children to save them from socialist poverty


Just 15 years ago, Venezuelans were among the richest and freest people in Latin America.

Then the country voted for socialism.

Now Venezuelans struggle for daily survival. The government dispenses all food, education and medical care. Men die in the streets fighting over dollars. Women walk the streets as prostitutes for as little as a package of diapers or a tube of toothpaste.

Families dig through trashbins for food. Cats, dogs and pigeons are regularly eaten for food.

Groups of Venezuelans have broken into zoos to cook and eat zebras and other animals.

Starving Venezuelan prisoners killed, cooked and ate another inmate for survival.

Now families with daughters are giving them away because “It’s better that she has another family than go into prostitution, drugs or die of hunger.” See here.
