Venezuelan women sell hair to buy food


Women in Venezuela are selling their hair in exchange for valuable Colombian pesos.

Tens of thousands of people from Venezuela are crossing into Colombia every day since the shared border reopened in August.

Most are in desperate need of food and medical supplies, which are increasingly hard to find at home due to the economic crisis.

Al Jazeera’s Alessandro Rampietti reports from Cucuta.
