Venezuela offered humanitarian aid and risk experts team to cooperate in evacuation and preventive relocation of citizens in Saint Vincent and the Grenadines after the alert issued by authorities of that country after the increase in activity of the La Soufriere volcano.
Thousands of people have been evacuated from their homes due to the eruption this Friday in the north of the island of San Vicente , which extends more than 50 kilometers away through the Caribbean Sea, making it difficult to transfer those affected to safer areas.
The humanitarian delegation is made up of 68 women and men who will also bring food, drinking water and other supplies.
Likewise, there are 15 Civil Protection experts for search and rescue work; pre-hospital emergency, logistics and communications.
The Simón Bolívar International Task Force team set sail this Saturday for Saint Vincent and the Grenadines aboard the Bolivarian Navy ship AB Goajira (T-63).
