We are several university scientists who have established very close links with Venezuela, and this for many years (some of us have even done their doctoral thesis in Venezuela…).

Seeing the situation in which our friends and colleagues find themselves today is terribly painful. We could not stand by and do nothing.

The Articles and Testimonials sections are places designed to collect testimonials from Venezuelan colleagues on their working conditions, professional situations and future prospects. It is also an opportunity to express the type of support expected from the international community.
