Twenty-five million euros-worth of humanitarian aid was delivered to Puerto de la Guaira, Venezuela from international partners in Cuba, China, Russia, Palestine, Turkey, among others.

Over 22,570 units of spare parts for medical equipment, 192,000 kit for diagnostic tests and “more than 100,000 kit for cytology” were included in the shipment, which Health Minister Carlos Alvarado said is received regularly in the port city.

“It is not strange that we are receiving containers here in the port of La Guaira,” he said, noting that some of the products are the result of a “direct purchase” while others are part of an agreement with Cuba and China.

In this way the Venezuelan Government manages to keep the socialist health system functioning, “despite the situation of drowning of the empire,” he said.
