Richard Branson is hosting a concert in a Colombian border town to support people in Venezuela. People hope that soon it will be possible to get supplies there so that people are not suffering so much.

The Venezuela regime is pushing strongly against protesters, which has led to violent clashes. Despite the violence, thousands crossed the border to attend the concert. People expect that a total of 250,000 people will attend.

Over 30 renowned Latin American artists are performing at the event. They hope to raise an ambitious 100 million dollars.
