This fundraiser managed by La Fuerza Unida at Bard High School Early College Queens will collect funds that will all go to the non-profit CARE organization, more specifically to the Humanitarian Crisis in Venezuela.
The Venezuelan Crisis: Currently thousands of children are at risk of dying from malnutrition and people are unable to afford healthcare. With more than 3 million people having fled Venezuela to countries such as Colombia, Ecuador, and Peru and not as many places to work as they often have an illegal status many women and girls have to go into sex work. Resulting in abuse and illegal sex trafficking. The CARE organization not only sends care packages with products including sanitary wipes, toothbrushes and soap. These funds also help supply cash vouchers, safe transport, and fund events to talk about xenophobia and gender violence to promote inclusion.
