Since August, the United Nations Children's Fund (UNICEF) has sent around 120 tonnes of medicines, health and food supplies to women, children and adolescents to Venezuela to mitigate the effects of the economic crisis on the population.

Deliveries are part of an agreement with the Venezuelan government to extend the multilateral UN body's programs throughout the country through technical co-operation and help to help 350,000 women and children at risk.

The International Body said in a statement that the situation has reduced children's access to basic services and that 12% of Venezuelan population suffers from malnutrition, according to the latest report by the State on Food Security and Nutrition in the World.
