U.S. Navy Hospital Ship Provides Care To Venezuelan Refugees Off Coast Of Colombia

The Guardian: U.S. navy hospital ship stokes tensions by giving Venezuelan refugees free care
“A U.S. navy hospital ship moored off Colombia has started giving free medical care to Venezuelan refugees, in a move likely to rile officials in Caracas who deny the existence of a humanitarian crisis in their own country — and have long been suspicious of the close relationship between Colombia and the U.S. … Some three million Venezuelans have fled political turmoil and economic hardship at home, including one million who have taken shelter in Colombia, which has struggled to deal with the exodus…” (Daniels, 11/18).
