In the lead up to the Easter season, the Colombian Church donated 250,000 communion wafers to the Catholic Church in Venezuela.

Friday, Caritas Venezuela received a request that is becoming all too familiar: people and hospitals in need of basic medical supplies in order to perform routine medical procedures. Staples such as bandages and medications, even distilled water for the nebulizers used in asthma treatment, have become almost impossible to source. On Friday it was the public hospital that was all out of IV drips. Fortunately Caritas had some in stock.
