Since 2010, one of the most important countries in South America has collapsed, with the trigger of democracy, the daily violation of human rights, the hyperinflation, no freedom of expression, the lack of opportunities and some other situations, Venezuela needs help.

Corruption, feminicides, fake threatments for COVID, a code where if you criticize the government you could be targeted as a terrorist and several more issues are now in the focus.
