I will not allow Venezuelan children live on the streets!” — such a promise after winning the elections in 1998 gave the former leader of the country. 20 years later the situation has not improved. Street children in Caracas so far no one managed to accurately count. However, those who have been to the capital of the Bolivarian Republic known them enough to call the situation a crisis.

Homeless is just one of the manifestations of a deep economic and social crisis that has consumed Venezuela, one of the richest oil countries on the continent.
