Hi, my name is Andrea and i live currently in Venezuela where our lives are currently underseige. I have a degree and i wish to leave to provide a new life , for myself, parents and underage sisters. Can you please,please help? My family would be grateful

Hi, my name is Andrea, i'm 27 years old and i live in Venezuela. As you might heard from media reports things have deteriorated here, every day we get a new struggle, we are merely surviving but not living at all. I decided that i need to leave and start a new life and work at another place, in this case: Perú, so i can bring my younger sisters and parents to safety. See the thing is it costs a lot and a lot more than i have, in this country we have exchange control, so regular people like me can't simple get dollars at preferencial price (the one the goverment holds) and find them in blackmarket at a VERY high price, impossible for me or anyone with just min wage. We have a big health, economic, social and security crisis, simple things are a luxury and hard to find. 

UPDATE: inflation went very high once again, making it even more harder to live here, now what i make a month doesn't cover personal (important) things and food, everything is so expensive, doesn't matter how much you work, is never enough, prices change almost twice a day. 

Things have been very hard this year for us as a family, my 4 year old cousin was diagnosed with cancer and they had to move out of the country as emergency because there isn't treatment for cancer here, so they had to run to give him a chance of recovery, then in february my 5 year old cousin died, he had and accident and when they got to the hospital there wasn't oxygen so he stopped breathing, he was alive when he got there, every day i get more and more worried for my sisters future, they are so young and future doesn't look bright here at the moment, i want to give them a chance to have one, i'm scared for them, and for everyone i love and for myself too, fear, desperation are growing as days pass, but holding to the hope of getting a new chance at life.

I'm asking for your help to give my family a new life. A life without threat of war and death at every turn. I am a pshychologist who works with special needs students, in another country with the schooling i have had, i would have an income that would help me cost basic human stuffs.

If you have any extra, even just a dollar, i would be forever grateful for your support, it's not an easy decision to make, to leave in a desperation to have a better oportunity of future, but i'm sure i can do it and will help my family from there and to get there with me too, sadly there's no future for me here and even less for my sisters, we have been robbed from it.

the money is

To buy the plane ticket (it's around 800$ depends on the time)

pay for at least one month of rent.

to start every Visa process over there.

Please, if you can, help me to save my family, give my sisters a future. I thank you with all my heart.

UPDATE:Thankfully people living outside had helped me a lot, a person i truly love is giving me an oportunity to work in Perú, with elections coming i'm trying to leave as soon as i can, this is a new goal only 800$ to pay for my flight ticket (or bus ticket) and cover a few expenses for when i get there, please, please everyday is harder to have a decent life here, i know i can have new opportunites in another country so i can in a future help my sisters have a better one too.

Every peny counts, the sooner i leave the better, we never know what the president will proclame as law and make it harder to leave.
