The families of Venezuelan school children living in poverty this week began receiving food rations from a United Nations agency.
Jul 7, 2021
The agency will provide school meals, invest in school cafeterias and train staff in food safety standards under the agreement signed in April with President Nicolas Maduro. It is providing food rations initially because schools are closed due to the coronavirus pandemic.
The agency aims to provide 42,000 packages in the first month.
The organization plans to gradually expand programs to reach 1.5 million children by the end of the 2022-2023 school year.
