A stunning report published by the United Nations this week is shedding new light on the staggering humanitarian crisis taking place in Venezuela; confirming nearly two million people have fled the socialist nation since 2015.
The UN called for a “non-political” response to help stem the regional crisis; adding 5,000 people are leaving Venezuela on a daily basis for neighboring countries.
“A non-political and humanitarian approach is essential to help states receiving them in growing numbers,” said the head of the UN Refugee Agency. “Some 5,000 people are now leaving Venezuela daily – the largest population movement in Latin America’s recent history.”
Venezuela’s socialist President Nicolas Maduro issued a series of “revolutionary” economic policies earlier this year to ease runaway inflation; raising the minimum wage by 3,000% and slashing five zeroes off the nation’s struggling currency.
