US aid lands in Colombia as part of effort to deliver supplies to Venezuela

(CNN)A second wave of US aid arrived Saturday at the Colombian-Venezuelan border in the midst of Venezuela’s humanitarian crisis.

The US Air Force C-17 cargo planes left Homestead Air Reserve Base in Miami and landed in Cucuta, Colombia, according to a statement from the US Agency for International Development (USAID). The relief supplies delivered included hygiene kits that can help about 25,000 people and nutrition products that USAID says can feed about 3,500 children.
The first wave of aid arrived February 8 and included locally purchased food kits, hygiene kits, medical supplies, ready-to-use supplementary foods and high-energy biscuits, USAID said.
