Trucks filled with humanitarian aid from the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) have arrived at the border in Colombia, including food, medical supplies, hygiene kits and nutritional products intended for the people of Venezuela.
These efforts are a result of Secretary of State Mike Pompeo’s January 24 announcement that the U.S. would provide more than $20 million in initial humanitarian assistance to the people of Venezuela. They’re struggling to cope with severe food and medicine shortages and other dire consequences of the corrupt Maduro regime.
Below are some scenes of the USAID help making its way to the border of Venezuela. Also below are images of a community kitchen on the Colombia-Venezuela border that feeds Venezuelans who have fled their country. Check back for updates.
