Hungry Venezuelans rummage for food in Brazil landfill

Surrounded by vultures perched on trees waiting their turn, penniless Venezuelan migrants scrape a living scavenging for metal, plastic, cardboard and food at the rubbish dump of a Brazilian border town.

Trapped in a wasteland limbo, they barely make enough to feed their families and cannot afford a bus ticket to get away and find regular work in Brazilian cities to the south.

They blame Venezuela’s leftist President Nicolas Maduro for mismanaging their oil-producing nation’s economy and causing the deep crisis that drove them and several million others to emigrate.

A dozen Venezuelans scramble to grab bags of rubbish that tumble from the trash truck twice a day.
