Bogota - Colombia receives support from Europe in dealing with the migration movements from Venezuela. As the daily newspaper El Espectador reports, Belgium and British pharmaceutical company provided 364,000 vaccinations against rotavirus, diphtheria and tetanus, among others.
"This help comes at the right moment," said Health Minister Juan Pablo Uribe in statement that was circulated yesterday. The donation is an example of solidarity and support for migrants.
Venezuela has been shaken by severe supply crisis for years. The opposition accuses the government of failed economic policies and corruption, and the government blames an economic war by neoliberal forces for the deficiencies in the country. Around three million Venezuelans have fled their home country since 2015, at least one million of them to neighboring Colombia.
