"News emerging from Venezuela that people who buy too much food are being arrested is a stark indication of the severe erosion of that country’s economy over the past three years at least. This shocking development follows on bloody food riot ...", www.jamaicaobserver.com
"Two weeks later, the little girl writhed screaming in a hospital bed, in a life-or-death crisis caused by Venezuela’s shattered health care system. Doctors diagnosed her with a staph infection, whisked her into emergency care and gave her the last of the hospital’s supply of the antibiotic vancomycin. An X-ray at a private clinic confirmed doctors’ fears: The bacteria had spread from her scraped knee to her right lung. Doctors warned her parents that without a chest drainage machine and more antibiotics, she would die. [...] in addition to medicine, Ashley now needed emergency surgery on her infected knee. Only two of the hospital’s 27 operating rooms were fully functional, and 150 children were waiting for a spot. Stray dogs wandered the building, and the staff had run out of bleach to clean the floors. [...] nearly a month after she was hospitalized, Ashley’s fever subsided. [...] help came from the next room over.", www.sfgate.com
"This tear-jerking picture of tiny newborns sleeping in cardboard boxes in a Venezuelan hospital has gone viral. The image - released by the country’s opposition party, Mesa de la Unidad Democratica - shows a line of little ones, fast asleep in their cardboard cribs. The party blames the healthcare", uk.news.yahoo.com
"Many Venezuelans are outraged after a doctor at the Domingo Guzman Lander hospital in Barcelona, in the north-eastern state of Anzoategui, posted online photos of newborn babies sleeping in cardboard boxes because the hospital does not have enough incubators.", latino.foxnews.com
"Venezuelans struggling to feed their families let alone their pets are dumping animals on the streets, in parks and at makeshift homes overrun with scrawny animals amid an economic crisis. An hour from Caracas in Los Teques, hundreds of dogs bark and run around the streets scavenging for food outside a makeshift Famproa shelter. People come by every few hours to hand over scrawny dogs which are fed by volunteers every day. Venezuela is undergoing a major economic and social crisis, with shortages of basic foods and medicines. Triple digit inflation is hitting everybody hard, including those who own pets.", www.theglobeandmail.com
"[...] seeing her skeletal body on the floor next to his bed has become a daily reminder of the economic crisis engulfing Venezuela. No figures are available, but activists and veterinarians say they are seeing a growing number of dogs and cats abandoned at parks, shelters, and private clinics. Shelters are running classes teaching pet owners to look for food substitutes in the hopes of helping them maintain their pets through the crisis. At one private shelter in the working-class Caracas neighborhood of El Junquito, a popular alternative for dogs that would never have been considered in better times is chickenfeed. Pet owners say the price of dog food has more than doubled in recent months to $2 a pound, more than a day's pay for those earning the minimum wage. In August, as Parra and his parents in the central city of Barquisimeto struggled to get by on his father's $23 monthly pension, he turned in desperation to a Facebook group that donates dog food to families", www.sfchronicle.com
"Venezuelans are having to abandon their starving pets as the already severe economic crisis continues to worsen. Forced to choose between feeding themselves or their animals, middle-class Venezuelans are abandoning their pets in the streets in never-seen-before numbers. An animal protection and control centre in the capital is seeing as many as 10 animals abandoned each day this summer, a surge from about a year ago when there were almost none.", www.independent.co.uk
"Venezuela's food shortages, inflation and crumbling medical sector have become such a source of anguish that a growing number of young women are reluctantly opting for sterilisations rather than face the hardship of pregnancy and child-rearing.", widerimage.reuters.com
