Starving, sold to paedophiles or simply abandoned Venezuela
Starving, sold to paedophiles or simply abandoned: How Venezuela’s children are paying a terrible price for their country’s failed socialist experiment 

Desperate mothers are selling their daughters’ young bodies for sex to buy food. Other poverty-stricken parents abandoned their children in the street to fight for themselves. ‘Venezuela was once the richest country in Latin America,’ Dr Huniades Urbina, a director of Caracas’ main children’s hospital, told MailOnline. ‘Patients would come to Caracas because we could provide the best care in the region. Now we can’t even feed the patients.’ Starved of resources and riddled with interference from President Maduro’s socialist regime the Hospital de Niños José Manuel de los Ríos has been robbed of the much of the equipment a modern hospital needs. There is no x-ray machine or CT scan. Nine of the twelves operating theatres have been closed and 310 of the 400 beds are no longer in use.
