Water shortages are becoming more acute in the Zulia region, a situation that has worsened in recent months and Nicolás Maduro’s regime is responsible and it has been made worse by the COVID-19 pandemic.
Citizens must walk up to one kilometer in search of the liquid and appeal to the solidarity of other citizens to be able to access the service.
Hundreds of towns in the state have not received piped drinking water for more than a decade and in the midst of a coronavirus crisis, where the main recommendation is to constantly wash your hands, it is impossible for citizens to comply with the measure.
“I’ve been living in the sector for 17 years, I’ve never had water. They only laid the pipe, it came to us for three days and never again came. We have to walk for miles to get water,” said a resident of the San Francisco sector in Zulia State.
The water crisis worsens daily and Venezuelans are calling for a change of government to end the neglect, poverty and violation of rights in Venezuela.
