Why Are People In Venezuela Starving


Venezuela’s economic crisis has made headlines all over the world for the past few years. Hunger is widespread there. Unable to afford the small amount of food available in supermarkets, many Venezuelans have resorted to eating garbage to survive. Even zoo animals in Venezuela are starving according to a report by the Daily Mail, and people have been breaking into zoos to eat them. A recent survey found that the “food crisis has also created an education crisis, as more than 1 million children no longer attend school, mostly due to hunger and a lack of public services.”
Moises Rendon and Mark L. Schneider of the Center for Strategic & International Studies provide a bleak assessment of Venezuela’s current situation, saying the country is suffering “an unprecedented man-made humanitarian crisis.” They say Venezuela resembles “a country at war and notes some of its major social problems, including “extreme food and medicine shortages,” “rampant crimes in every city,” “constant electric blackouts,” and “looting and repression.” When you see and hear these stories, you can’t help but wonder what went wrong.
