The Venezuelan government sent 10 tons of relief supplies to Jamaica on Saturday to help the victims of Hurricane Dennis, which has left more than a dozen people dead in the Caribbean.
The first shipment included water tanks, kerosene lamps, mineral water and blankets, the Interior Ministry said, adding that a team of 10 engineers also went to Jamaica to assess the situation.
Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez has said his government is considering providing more aid to Jamaica and two other affected countries Cuba and Haiti.
Dennis, one of the mightiest hurricanes of the Atlantic Ocean since 1851, hit Jamaica this week, flooding several towns and affecting nearly 3,000 people. One person went missing.
It has killed 10 people in Cuba and five others in Haiti.
