Caracas, Capital, Venezuela
According to the Inter-American Commission on Human Rights, in 2017, each week six children die from lack of food in Venezuela.
Hunger, coupled with the shortage of doctors and medicines led the infant mortality rate back to rates of the 1950s. Doctors are afraid to attribute the cause of deaths to malnutrition, says a doctor at the Hospital José Manuel do los Rios.
Caritas, an NGO linked to the Catholic Church estimates that 65% of children between 0 and 5 years old show signs of malnutrition and 16% have severe malnutrition.
