Venezuela is crippled by a gas shortage, but a nurse in Venezuela packed a bag with food and hitchhiked to help the 2-year-old girl pictured here. The child, Anailin Nava, was featured last week in a New York Times article about the economic collapse of Venezuela. Now the girl, who was malnourished, is getting the supplements she needs. Toas island, where she lives, is practically cut off from the mainland, and bags of subsidized food from the government arrive every 5 months. According to Anailin’s mother, Maibeli Nava, and her neighbors, families consume much of the food within a week. The nurse, Fabiola Molero, said Anailin’s case was one of the worst she had seen. The family often could not afford to feed her more than once a day — and sometimes had only rice or cornmeal to eat. Anailin’s mother was afraid her daughter was going to die. But the arrival of the nurse, and the food, made an immediate difference: “Now she’s cheerful.” @meridithkohut shot this photo on the ground in Venezuela.
