Charting Venezuela's fall into deprivation

The last five years has seen life become harder and harder for average citizens in Venezuela.
By Carmen Aguilar Garcia, data journalist, and Sanya Burgess, news reporter

Venezuela is in crisis.

Sky News has reported on desperate citizens trying to sell their hair to make money, walking miles in the baking heat while carrying their newborn babies to buy food over the border and one of the country's biggest hospitals in Caracas has no medicine.

This deprivation is rooted in a damaged social and economic environment.

Nicolas Maduro, who is ignoring calls to give up power, rose to become the country's socialist leader in 2013.

His position is disputed, with left-wing leader Juan Guaido being recognised by some international leaders as interim president.

Thigibh a nis le buidheachas
n a gheataibh-san a steach,
Is thigibh fòs le maladh mòr
an cùirtibh naomh a theach :
Is thugaibh dha mòr-bhuidheachas,
ainm beannaichibh gu binn.

Psalm 100: 4

"Beware of the false prophets! They come to you wearing sheep's clothing, but underneath they are hungry wolves! You will recognize them by their fruit. Can people pick grapes from thorn bushes, or figs from thistles?
Matthew 7: 15-16 Complete Jewish Bible

Dear friends, don't trust every spirit. On the contrary, test the spirits to see whether they are from God; because many false prophets have gone out into the world.
