Patricia Tagliaferri is a Venezuelan woman with a message: “We need help.” Venezuela has been in the grips of a major recession. Basic household goods like tampons, food and even toilet paper have become scarce. How bad is inflation in Venezuela? A cheeseburger will run you $170 dollars. This woman’s cries for help puts a human face on the Venezuelan crisis.

Tagliaferri, a college graduate with a degree in computer sciences, cannot afford enough to make ends meet, even though she has a job in the public sector.

She is heartbroken over the life that her 2-year-old will inherit. “He deserves a better future than this,” she said in the video.

Tagliaferri admits that her mother, who lives outside of Venezuela, is able to help her by sending money.

But even with the help of her mother, Tagliaferri is still stuck in a horrible situation, where food is becoming scarce.

Food is becoming so scarce in Venezuela that people are looting grocery stores and overturning trucks to steal food. People are brawling in Venezuela for food as grocery stores sit empty with nothing to offer their customers.

The night before she recorded the video, three armed men stole her car in front of her and her family. Their 2-year-old son was there to witness the robbery.

No mother should have to fear for the life of her young child.

She is asking people to share her video to spread awareness about what is happening.

That’s kinda the point Andy Cohen was trying to make when he asked Carey the question, like, three times.

“But do you know her because she says you know each other?!” Cohen asked, to which she once again replied…

“If I had never had a conversation with you and someone asked me about you, I’d be like, ‘I don’t know him but he seems cool,'” she said.
