VENEZUELAN HOUSEHOLDS COUNT TO THE LAST DROP OF WATER. Four out of every 100 citizens in Venezuela have to travel a kilometer or more to obtain water, because the system collapsed in the last 20 years and today it works only with 40% of its capacity. Only 25% of people receive continuous water through the pipes at home, and nine out of 100 never receive it.
The first OVSP survey in 2021 showed that 8.4% of Venezuelans never receive water through pipes; 65.9% suffer from rationing and the other 25% of those consulted – the minority – said they always receive it. Among the nearly 66% of those who sometimes receive water, 21% have access twice a month or less.
