- Venezuela’s Coronavirus Response Might Surprise You
Manitos Children”s Fund focuses on the children of Venezuela who are suffering most under US sanctions and current Trump’s economic blockade. They are not getting enough to eat and many are sick or dying from lack of access to medicine.
Only sanctions adopted by the United Nations are legal. Unilateral sanctions such as those imposed by the United States are illegal and considered an Act of War. Indeed, under the Trump Administration, sanctions have been turned into a slow, but deadly weapon of war. Sanctions target the weakest and poorest sectors; especially children, the elderly, and the sick. They rarely affect the country’s leaders or elite.
You can help right now by making a tax-deductible donation to Manitos Children’s Fund/AFGJ. Or you can have a bigger impact by joining with family, friends, your church or club to raise money locally to buy food or medicine for Manitos Children’s Fund to donate to hungry and sick children in Venezuela. And, while you are doing either of those things you can educate your neighbors about the suffering that sanctions cause and tell your elected officials that you oppose unilateral and illegal sanctions.
The Manitos Children’s Fund is working to protect children from the brutal impacts of sanctions.
The Manitos Children’s Fund works directly with Venezuelan groups to provide materials they require such as food and supplies for growing food, and medications. Where possible, we buy food such as black beans from Nicaraguan farm cooperatives affiliated with the farmworkers union ATC (Asociación de Trabajadores del Campo) You can help by making a tax-deductible donation today, or more importantly, by setting up a local committee in your place of worship or civic organization to raise money on an ongoing basis to feed the children and provide medicine to those who need it to survive.
