The crisis in Venezuela has reached all sectors of the country. One of the most affected is the food sector because food production has fallen due to the poor management of the Nicolás Maduro regime.
The Venezuelan needs 65 minimum wages per month to cover the basic food basket. The deputy to the National Assembly, Richard Arteaga, said that currently the country’s households do not have the resources to maintain a balanced diet due to the economic crisis.
“A Venezuelan who wants to make a soup with his family has to invest the minimum wage plus 56 thousand bolivars. It is something that we have never lived in ahy era of our democratic or republican history”, added Arteaga.
Parliamentarians also fear that malnutrition-related diseases will increase in the country because it will be increasingly difficult to access food.
The interim government of President Juan Guaidó, is still working to attack the food crisis with the entry of humanitarian aid to the country. Recently, the first lady, Fabiana Rosales delivered five thousand food rations to six foundations that will benefit 12 thousand children, in addition to medical supplies for at least six thousand people in Valencia, Carabobo state.
