The humanitarian aid for Venezuela arrives in Cucuta

Cucuta (Colombia) / At least nine trucks carrying humanitarian aid sent by the United States to Venezuela arrived in the Colombian city of Cucuta, where the authorities of the three countries are completing the mechanisms to deliver it.

The trucks came to the international bridge of Tienditas, one of the three border crossings of Cucuta with Venezuela and that is also one of the collection centres to receive the aid announced by the head of the Parliament, Juan Guaido, who proclaimed himself interim president of that country.

The other two collection points are in Brazil and in Puerto Rico, whose secretary of state, Luis Rivera, confirmed that a first shipment is already in Venezuela.

The aid sent by Puerto Rico includes articles for an oncological and pediatric hospital in the oil country.

Guarded by Colombian police, the vehicles were received on the bridge by more than a hundred people, and among them were some Venezuelans who asked for “humanitarian aid now.”

A Tienditas, explained the National Unit for Risk Management (UNGRD), an entity from the Colombian Government, will arrive in the coming days more aid to be taken to Venezuela, although the Government of Nicolas Maduro blocked the bridge with a cistern orange and two blue containers.
