Lack of supplies

4 years ago, a video was recorded at the J.M. de los Ríos (the largest children's hospital in Venezuela) where 9 mothers and fathers clamored for the health of their children who were infected due to the lack of cleaning of the osmosis tank in the Hospital.

Vicky, Carmen, Emilce, Judith and Katherine watch the video again, which after being presented at he Inter-American Commission on Human Rights (IACHR), became an important record of the lack of supplies and infrastructure that has claimed the lives of dozens of kids.

When we first arrived at the J.M. de los Ríos Hospital (the largest children's hospital in the country), we realized that one of the resources that was most scarce was accompaniment. Since 2008 we have assisted and accompanied thousands of mothers, aunts and grandmothers (caregivers women) who make journeys from the interior of the country to ensure the treatment of their children, and children and adolescents with chronic pathologies who smile and sing in front of the adversities.

Their stories of bravery and courage are the example we need to continue our work, they need you almost as much as the country needs their sacrifice and perseverance to get ahead.

From female caregiver to human rights defender After a twelve-year struggle to cope with his son Samuel's chronic kidney disease, an infectious outbreak struck the Hospital's dialysis unit.
