The Simón Bolívar Foundation categorically rejects the false accusations made last Wednesday, September 29th by Nicolás Maduro’s regime against the Foundation and its President, Mariela Poleo, who joined the board of the private non-profit organization in 2020 , after a competitive selection process.
Real facts about the Foundation and the critical work it carries out are available at www.simonbolivarfoundation.org. Visitors to the website can read the Foundation’s first annual report reporting 2020 charitable activities, understand its mission, and learn about all its programs including ongoing grant agreements, that benefit more than 100,000 vulnerable Venezuelans and others communities in need. The annual report also details the actual budget of the Foundation. Additionally, the Foundation’s annual tax returns can be found on the website of the US Internal Revenue Service (IRS).
Today and every day, the Simón Bolívar Foundation remains committed to its mission: to improve the health of vulnerable people affected by disasters, conflict and poverty, with special attention to mothers and children inside and outside Venezuela.
