U.S. Pre-Positions Humanitarian Relief Supplies For Venezuela In Curaçao

USAID: The United States Pre-Positions Humanitarian Assistance in Curaçao to Help Venezuelans in Need
“[On Wednesday], the United States is pre-positioning humanitarian relief supplies in Curaçao, a constituent country of the Kingdom of the Netherlands, to help people affected by the political and economic crisis in Venezuela. The collapse of health care in Venezuela has left nearly all hospitals in the country in desperate need of basic medicines and supplies, and prompted outbreaks of diseases that were thought to be under control. [The] commercial delivery to Curaçao contains four emergency health kits manufactured in the Netherlands, which contain medicines and medical supplies — including bandages, gauze, examination gloves, thermometers, and syringes — designed to fill immediate medical gaps for people affected by emergencies. The kits can cover the priority health needs of 40,000 people for three months…” (4/3).
