The U.S. Agency for International Development, also known by its acronym in English, USAID, clarified this Tuesday through its form of frequently asked questions about Venezuela that the Legitimate Government has not handled Humanitarian Aid money.
“Most USAID funds are awarded competitively to private organizations through contracts, grants or cooperation agreements. Implementing partners include religious and community organizations, the private sector, colleges and universities, public international organizations, and nonprofit nongovernmental organizations,” they said in the publication.
“Although the interim government of Venezuela does not currently administer any USAID program or fund, in some cases, USAID provides compensation, travel costs, and other expenses for some technical advisors to the National Assembly and the Guaidó Interim Administration through assistance funds. Funds are not provided directly to elected members of the National Assembly, to high-level officials of the Guaidó Administration, to Ambassadors, or to the interim President himself,” the U.S. Federal agency said.
