Venezuela crisis: Taos island residents struggle to survive –

President Nicolas Maduro has rallied hundreds of supporters with an upbeat message of defiance against sanctions imposed by the United States.

Those living on an island once dubbed “paradise”, are reportedly trying to survive on just a few cents a month and many on Toas are finding it hard to feed their families.
