Venezuelan American Leadership Council

At VALC we believe that times of great commotion require all affected and concerned parties to take a stand and to respond in a cohesive and orderly fashion, pooling strengths and efforts to achieve common goals. We have watched with increasing concern the progressive deterioration of the Venezuelan refugee crisis in Colombia. With this in mind, we have been working for the past months on Project HAVEN (Humanitarian Assistance for Venezuelan Refugees). With project HAVEN we intend to pool resources and coordinate the relief efforts aimed at assisting Venezuelan Refugees in Colombia. We understand we are taking on a massive endeavour, however we are firm believers in the commitment of all of our followers and contributors to seeing this through and are confident that if we come together and work hard towards our common goal, we will not only achieve it but will surpass it. Stay tuned in the coming days for more information regarding how you can contribute to this effort. In the meantime please text “SOSVZLA” to 414-44 to make a donation. Every contribution no matter how big or small can make a huge impact on the lives of those who we intend to help.

Who We Are: Venezuelan American Leadership Council

The Venezuelan American Leadership Council is a grassroots movement. We're working together to bring democracy and peace to Venezuela, which has suffered for too long. The economy has collapsed, Venezuelans are starving, and the government is making the situation worse through its oppression.
