This article from the Washington Post describes the threats to families in Venezuela today, including the instances of family separation due to poverty and lack of resources. “It’s tough to be a mother in Venezuela. You want to give your kids the best, but you can’t," says one parent interviewed for the article. Many parents are migrating to find work, leaving their children behind with relatives or in the care of orphanages. Others struggle to keep their families together and provide for their children's needs.
