Climate: Guaidó asks for international help due to rains

(ANSA) – CARACAS, NOV 19 – The Venezuelan opposition leader Juan Guaidó, president of the National Assembly, today requested international help to face the situation generated by the heavy rains that so far have left three dead and thousands affected in about 10 Venezuelan states

“We are looking for international support to be able to help our people as we did with El Limón, in Aragua. At the same time, we have to raise our voice against abandonment and for the dignified life we ​​deserve,” said Guaidó, recognized as interim president by more than 50 countries. And he added “the tragedy cannot be custom in Venezuela”

In addition, he stressed that in the midst of the torrential downpours registered in the last 24 hours in the country, “there are no bilge pumps to draw water, there is no gasoline for the Civil Protection units destined to attend and help citizens who needed it”

“The maintenance of the drainage system was abandoned and there is no prevention of natural risks,” he warned

Guaidó indicated that Venezuelans “know natural disasters, but now they are aggravated by a humanitarian emergency caused by an indolent and cruel dictatorship that seized power, abandoned the citizen and blocks the aid and solutions that we can get.”

In this sense, he specified that at least 10 states in Venezuela, such as Zulia, Táchira, Lara, Trujillo, Amazonas, Bolívar, Barinas, Falcón, Portuguesa and Sucre have been affected by the heavy rains in recent weeks

“Three dead and thousands of affected with whom is our thought at this moment,” he said. (ANSA)
