Hello, I’m Nataly. I am a Venezuelan graduate of Agronomic Engineering. My girlfriend Katherine and I have 6 years together, she is a design teacher. We are activists for equal rights. Currently our country is experiencing one of the worst economic and social crisis, so we are forced to make the decision to migrate; unfortunately we do not have the necessary resources because the monthly salaries are around $ 3 or less and that basically does not reach us to live or save, we are trying to sell the few things of value that we have, but it’s not much either.
We feel trapped in a country where they violate our human rights daily and where we do not have rights as a couple. In recent years we have been victims of robberies on multiple occasions but the level of impunity is very high, we feel insecure wherever we are. We protested against the government in all the occasions that we could, but this is a strange disguised dictatorship that only seeks to keep us in misery through fear.
We would like to count on your help to get out to a more stable and safe Latin country (with all our papers in order) where we have friends who can receive and collaborate with us, and thus be able to project ourselves as professionals, as a couple and help our family from a better position.
The money will be used to cover the cost of the tickets by land as it is very expensive by plane and to keep us on the trip (which is several days).
We kept hope for a while but really every day the situation gets worse. We really appreciate any donation with which you can help us. We will be eternally grateful and will repay your kindness in any way we can.
