Who We Are

In a few words, we are Venezuela in BC.

We are a group of dedicated volunteers with love for their native land and a passion for helping others.

We are mothers, fathers, aunts and uncles, cousins, brothers, sisters, grandparents and ALL children of an amazing country.  We are also blessed and thankful to be living in Canada.

We are siblings of the foam, the cranes, the roses, and the sun!
