Ted Hinchman

Ted started spending his winters in Venezuela every year from 1994-2008. In 2009 he divested himself of most of his material possessions, put his truck in storage and started spending nine months out of the year in Venezuela.

In 2018, he was no longer able to return to the US and lived year-round in Venezuela until 2021, when he was able to flee the country in a harrowing journey through three different countries to finally reach his home state of Texas.

Now re-settled permanently in the US, Ted created this website to raise awareness of the plight of the Venezuelan people, who are facing abject poverty, disease and starvation. It is his goal to help the American public understand the conditions in Venezuela from someone who actually lived there.
