Venezuela's President Nicolas Maduro has asked for help from the United Nations to boost supplies of medicine.
Venezuela's Medical Federation said recently that hospitals had less than 5% of the medicines they needed.
``I've asked for support from the United Nations to help treat the economic and social injuries that have hit our people,'' he said Friday on television.
Shortages of food and many other essential items mean Venezuelans have to face long queues almost daily to buy basic goods.
Medicines are no exception.
Correspondents say Mr Maduro's acknowledgement that Venezuela needs outside help is indicative of the dire situation the country is in, despite having some of the largest oil reserves in the world.http://www.bbc.com/news/world-latin-america-39388850And there you have it...rich oil reserves and they want the US working man to pay for their corruption. I want Trump to dump the worthless, hateful, anti-American UN. Venezuela take a big dump in their own cereal bowls for all I care.
