As the people of Venezuela suffer the ravages that Socialism serves up as a reward to those who blindly allow the dogma to metastasize in their countries, they can chalk up one more humanitarian organization whose benevolence is being snubbed by the ruling elite.
Doctors Without Borders (MSF) announced Tuesday that had no choice but to end operations in a hospital located in one of the poorest neighborhoods in Venezuela.
The organization pointed to the refusal by socialist regime of dictator Nicolás Maduro to allow its specialists to enter the country.
Following months of entry restrictions on MSF humanitarian personnel, we've been forced to withdraw from the Ana Francisca Pérez de León II hospital in northeast Caracas, Venezuela.
We've been supporting the COVID-19 response there since March. https://t.co/yrBRHCL7vd

Under the Socialism that began under Hugo Chavez – and which has grown like a cancer under Maduro, Venezuela’s healthcare system has collapsed. Medical professionals there say the system lacks access to virtually every enumerated basic medication the World Health Organization deems necessary to offer proper health services.
Venezuela, once the wealthiest country in Latin America, now counted as one of the world’s most dangerous and impoverished locations on the planet. It took just two years for this devolution to occur.
The countries health system is made up largely of dilapidated, filthy, unsanitary hospitals and clinics. In addition to inferior healthcare and health facilities, Venezuela is also experiencing major shortages of food, fuel, and water.
By all accounts, a significant humanitarian crisis exists in that nation. It has prompted a massive refugee exodus from that nation, and the largest emigration in the history of the region.
Maduro’s totalitarian socialist regime routinely denies that Venezuela is undergoing any crisis at all. To keep the world from understanding the truth of the matter, the dictator and his minions limit access to its citizens by international aid groups.
