Turkey's Red Crescent to send aid to flood-hit Venezuela

Turkey's relief agency, the Red Crescent, will send a financial aid of nearly 50 thousand USD in an effort to help people in Venezuela who were left homeless after recent flood disaster.

Flood waters triggered by torrential rains have left scores of people dead and nearly 140 thousand others homeless in Central American country since November 24, 2010. Emergencies have been declared in eight states, and the country's Caribbean coast has been particularly hard hit by mud slides. The government said that more than 100 thousand people were being cared for at 710 shelters.
