US Sends Navy to Help Venezuela Refugees
The U.S. government is sending the Navy's giant hospital ship USNS Comfort to the Colombian side of the Venezuela border next month as part of a two-month humanitarian mission.

MIAMI – The U.S. government is sending the Navy's giant hospital ship USNS Comfort to the Colombian side of the Venezuela border next month on a two-month humanitarian mission.

"During the deployment, military medical personnel will work alongside our partners to provide needed medical assistance, according to the needs defined by each stop," said U.S. Southern Command (SOUTHCOM).


The USNS Comfort was requested by the Colombian government to relieve the pressure of increased population flows from Venezuela on their national health system.

"This mission is a symbol of what can be accomplished when partners work together to aid people in need," said U.S. Navy Adm. Kurt Tidd, commander of Southcom. "Because this mission is humanitarian in nature, it will focus on the people we're assisting, on the nations we're partnering with, and on the region we're supporting together."

This is the sixth time the hospital ship has been sent to the region since 2007.

It "reflects the United States’ steadfast commitment of friendship and solidarity with the Americas," said Southcom.
