Fund raising dinner for homeless children in Venezuela

Fund raising dinner for homeless children in Venezuela

Rotary club members recently attended dinner and learned to prepare arepas (maize meal patties typical of Venezuela) to raise funds for food and medication to three shelters for homeless children in Venezuela.

With inflation for 2016 estimated at over 800% and an economic decline of about 10%, Venezuela is facing a humanitarian crisis. Places like Asoprogar, which rely on private support are facing serious difficulties in raising the necessary funds to provide shelter, food, medicines and education to assist children in need. The funds raised have been used to purchase food and medicines.
