VOA responds to flooding in Venezuela

VOA's Spanish Branch has been a rallying point for assistance to the thousands of victims of monumental flooding in Venezuela. Working with VOA affiliate Union Radio in Caracas, VOA has been able to spread information throughout Latin America about the most critically needed supplies and up-to-the-minute updates on calls for assistance. Interviews with the Venezuelan Ambassadors to the United States and to the Organization of American States, as well with Venezuelan and disaster relief experts have been among the other aspects of VOA's coverage of the massive flooding that may claim 10,000 lives or more.
