Storyline


The Colombian people are dissatisfied with the idle "humanitarian aid" at the border with Venezuela as the Venezuelan government has refused to accept those supplies.

The United States sent the "humanitarian aid" to the border city of Cucuta in northeast Colombia several times since Juan Guaydo, the opposition leader in Venezuela, declared himself the temporary leader late January.

At the port of Tinditas in Cucuta, the Colombian military and police have set up a 24-hour security sentry, which vehicles and pedestrians are not allowed to pass without permission.

The "humanitarian aid" has been stored in the warehouses at this border port since Feb. 23.

Colombians think that there is no point in idling the relief supplies and think they should instead be distributed to people in need.

"The supplies can be distributed to areas of Colombia that are in need, like Chocó and Guajira where people are waiting to be helped," said a Bogota citizen.

"I think the humanitarian aid we have in Cucuta can be distributed here before being taken away. In Guajira, like I mentioned, for example, people there are also in desperate need of help," said another citizen.

Hundreds of cities and towns in Colombia have so far declared a state of emergency due to drought or flooding after extreme weather hit many parts of the country late last year.

People in Colombia said that they wish their government could focus more on domestic issues.

"Children also need assistance in Guajira where the extreme drought has caused starvation and severe malnutrition. The government of Ivan Duque is very concerned about the situation in Venezuela but we Colombians need to be concerned as well," the citizen said.
