font size    

The Venezuelan government will provide aid worth 8.2 million US dollars to tsunami victims in Sri Lanka and Indonesia, officials of the Foreign Ministry said on Saturday.

The aid includes 6.2 million dollars to Sri Lanka and 2 million dollars to Indonesia and will be handed over by mid-July.

The aid is donations collected in Venezuela during the campaign "One Bolivar for Asia" carried out by President Hugo Chavez.

The Venezuelan assistance to the victims shows the country's solidarity with the victims, said Vice Foreign Minister William Izarra.

On Dec. 26 last year, a tsunami caused by a strong earthquake in coastal areas around the Indian Ocean hit 11 countries in Asia and Africa, killing more than 180,000 people and affecting 3 million others.
