The head of the humanitarian services of the United Nations Organization (UN), Martin Griffiths, is visiting Venezuela, to give impetus to the aid program that the organization has been implementing in the country.
The senior official offered the information through a message on the twitter network.
“I look forward to collaborating with the Government and other key partners to address some of the most pressing social needs,” Griffiths wrote on the aforementioned network.
Griffiths, who is also coordinator of the UN Emergency Relief, will hold meetings with Executive authorities, as well as with representatives of UN agencies and non-governmental organizations that implement aid projects.
It is the first time that the UN representative visits Venezuela after the agreement with the national government to promote the Sustainable Development Goals.
The UN Humanitarian Response Plan prepared for Venezuela, with the support of 132 organizations, served 4.5 million citizens in 2021, according to data from the agency.
