A second Venezuelan humanitarian aid aircraft arrived Thursday in Haiti so as to assist people impacted by hurricane Matthew, which has killed 264 and caused several damages in the Caribbean nation.
Venezuelan Vice-Minister for Risk Management and Civil Protection, William Martínez, said that this time Haiti was to receive 20 tons of medical consumables and other items, state-run news agency AVN reported.
In Martínez’s words, a ship carrying 700 tons of humanitarian aid is expected to be sent Friday to Haiti. “We are assessing the possibility of a fourth cargo,” he said, as quoted in a press release posted on the webpage of the Ministry of Interior, Justice and Peace.
