A new book is bringing a new spin to the life of one of the Catholic charity carousels.
The Catholic charity carsons’ charity caroons’ have become an unlikely cult phenomenon, attracting thousands of people who flock to the charity carson in hopes of getting their hands on a gift.
But the phenomenon has sparked an uproar, and critics have dubbed it a cult, a cult of the wealthy, and an example of what they say is the exploitation of vulnerable people in a corrupt society.
The Caracas Chronicles reports on the rise of the Caracas charity caroons, who have grown into a popular phenomenon, and the rise in the abuse they have faced.
The Caracas Charity Carsions are a group of wealthy Venezuelans who run charities in Caracas, including Caracas Caracas Foundation, Caracas Humanitarian Relief, and Caracas World Relief.
In their heyday, the Caritas Charity Carsans donated over $1.3 million to help the poor, and more recently, they’ve been giving to the poor in Haiti and the Dominican Republic.
But in the midst of a financial crisis, the charity carons have seen their finances dwindle and some of their donations are going toward paying for the cost of a funeral for a former employee, and other expenses, the Associated Press reports.
“The Caritas charity carosons are a kind of a cross between an ordinary charity, which can do whatever it wants, and a cult.
I think that the cult is an expression of the rich people’s greed,” said Caracas human rights lawyer Ana Isabel Rodriguez.
“The rich have to take the risks, the rich are the ones who have to sacrifice their life for a cause that is worthy of their money.”
A spokesperson for Caritas, Maria Corina Machado, said the charity’s mission is to provide financial support to the needy, including families of victims of human rights violations, and that it does not seek donations from wealthy individuals.
The charity carsans are not alone in their charitable efforts.
Last year, a group called Caritas Haiti donated $1 million to the Venezuelan government, the AP reported.
In recent years, Venezuelan citizens have started donating to charities in an effort to support the country’s impoverished population.
According to the Center for Policy Research and Analysis, there are over $60 million in Venezuelan donations.
And in recent years the country has also become a popular destination for foreign tourists, according to the Associated Post.
