    First shipwreck of Venezuelan rafters

    The shipwreck occurred just few meters from the beach of Koraal Tabak. Pic: Meridith Kohut

    It was midnight last january 10 when approx 30 venezuelans climbed a little traditional fisher ship after the order of a smuggler and left for the island of Curaçao, about 100 kilometers from where they sailed. After 3 months of planning and 7 hours of crossing over a rough sea, a large wave hits the small boat just few meters from the coast, tearing it to pieces, reported one of the survivors while waiting to be deported back to Venezuela after being rescued and detained by the Dutch authorities.

    Cúcuta, the solution to many Venezuelans

    More than 550,000 Venezuelans have arrived in the last year to live in Colombia by Cúcuta

    When it comes to getting medical treatments, temporary work, migration for a short time, buying food or making more money, Cúcuta has been the better option, if not the perfect one, it is the most practical, for many Venezuelans.
