On Tuesday, a meeting was held to coordinate the humanitarian sea corridor announced by Venezuela’s Foreign Vice-minister for the Caribbean Raúl Li Causi to connect different Eastern Caribbean islands and countries and facilitate the transport of essential supplies in the face of natural disasters.
On this occasion, a shipment transporting drinking water will be sent by Saint Lucia to Saint Vincent and the Grenadines, which reported failures in its water and power supplies, following new eruptions of La Soufriere volcano.
At the meeting, they also coordinated logistics to unload 250,000 liters of drinking water sent by the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela in tanks donated by Trinidad and Tobago in solidarity with the Vincentian people.
Provisions will be transported in the next days by the AB “Goajira” T-63 navy ship, provided by the Venezuelan Government as part of ALBA-TCP’s solidarity.
“We are here to convey our most sincere message for solidarity. Venezuela is always trying to help others, to help these resilient people who will move forward,” said Li Causi when the first humanitarian aid arrived in Saint Vincent and the Grenadines on April 12.
