The Tribune (SLO) - - Insight -

The first ship­ment of hu­man­i­tar­ian aid from the Red Cross ar­rived in Venezuela on Tues­day, de­liv­er­ing medicine and sup­plies for needy patients whose pres­i­dent has long de­nied the ex­is­tence of a cri­sis.

Work­ers in blue vests loaded boxes with the Fed­er­a­tion of Red Cross and Red Cres­cent So­ci­eties em­blem onto trucks.

“It will be dis­trib­uted in con­for­mance with the fun­da­men­tal prin­ci­ples of our move­ment, es­pe­cially neu­tral­ity, im­par­tial­ity and in­de­pen­dence,” said Mario Vil­lar­roel, pres­i­dent of the Venezue­lan Red Cross. “Don’t al­low the politi­ciza­tion of this great achievement.”
