Mother, daughter desperate to leave Venezuela flee on foot

Barely able to feed her daughter and struggling to earn a living, Sandra Cadiz made the desperate decision to leave Venezuela.

But unlike most of the millions who have fled the nation's deadly shortages and spiraling hyperinflation in an exodus that rivals even the European refugee crisis in numbers, they couldn't afford a bus or plane. Instead, they would have to flee by foot, risking their lives as they tried to cross over two thousand miles of often unforgiving terrain ripe with danger.
