Humanitarian aid is distributed in Venezuela by the Red Cross

The first shipment of humanitarian aid from the Red Cross was distributed among Venezuelans. The aid is intended to alleviate a dire economic crisis in Venezuela.

The delivery of the aid came after an about-face by President Nicolas Maduro, who last week said his socialist government had reached an agreement with the Red Cross to bring aid. Maduro had blocked previous efforts to deliver assistance and has denied the existence of a humanitarian crisis.

There was little hope that the shipment, intended to help hospitals cope with shortages of equipment and frequent power outages would be anything more than a palliative measure for Venezuela, where over three million people have fled the chaos of hyperinflation and chronic shortages of food and medicine.
