The basic services crisis continues to worsen throughout the country. Most Venezuelans have to seek solutions to their problems in different ways in order to access water or domestic (cooking) gas.
In the Guacara Municipality in Carabobo State, they have not had piped water service for more than 3 months. Likewise, residents of the area reported that they have been without domestic gas for almost a year.
“What is happening here is that the water does not arrive and here there live about 250 people,” said Óscar Arévalo, a resident of the San Rafael community.
For his part, the citizen Henrique Escobar explained that they carry pots of water daily to be filled to able to have a little water in their homes and meet some needs.
“Every day I carry a jug, with the girl on one side and a pail on the other,” said Vicmary Matos.
A year without cooking gas in San Cristobal
The inhabitants of the Barrio Obrero sector of San Cristobal in Táchira State, protested on the main avenue of the state capital and denounced that they have not had access to domestic gas for a year.
The people of Tachira detailed that more than 600 families and many elderly people are being affected.
“It is not fair that they are going through this problem. And the gas that they can get is out of solidarity of the neighbors,”said Gloria Quintero, a resident of Táchira.
