Venezuelan doctors demand government allow aid into country

11 February 2019

A group of Venezuelan doctors demonstrated on the Colombian side of the border on Sunday. they demanded President Nicolas Maduro's government to allow humanitarian aid into their country.

Doctors at the demonstration said the food and medicine from the aid could be immediately used to befit their patients. humanitarian aid has become a flashpoint in an intensifying political crisis amid a hyperinflationary economic collapse that has caused malnutrition and the exodus of millions of people.

But Maduro denies there is even a crisis, saying it is part of a U.S.-directed plot to undermine and overthrow his government and has said his government will not let the aid in.
