Caracas is the capital and largest city in Venezuela, with more than three million residents. In recent months, plummeting oil prices combined with a significant drought has created a dire situation in cities across the nation. Four hour blackouts are now a regular occurrence and some regions go without power for days at a time. Most supermarkets have almost no food to sell, hospitals have no medicine, and crime is rampant and escalating. We hope this post continues to raise awareness for the crisis in Venezuela and that the situation on the ground improves in the very near future.
