The people of Venezuela collected and packaged about 300 tons of humanitarian aid to be sent to the Gaza Strip soon, a Palestinian Foreign Ministry said Wednesday.

Venezuelan Foreign Minister Elias Jaua notified his Palestinian counterpart Riyad al-Maliki during a meeting at the former's office in the Venezuelan capital Caracas, according to a statement.

During the meeting which was held Tuesday, al-Maliki updated Jaua on the most urgent humanitarian aids needed to bring life back to the Palestinian coastal enclave.

After the meeting, the two ministers left to Caracas international airport to officially announce the departure of the first plane carrying humanitarian aid to Gaza.

A military plane took off at 13:41 p.m. heading to al-Ismailiya airport in Egypt. Venezuelan Minister of Defense Admiral Carmen Melendez attended the ceremony.

More planes will take off in the coming days and the whole amount of aid will then be sent to the Gaza Strip via Egypt's Rafah crossing.

I guess it's easier than dealing with the economic chaos in Venezuela.

Back in 2010, Gaza children collected notebooks, pencils and toys for kids on Haiti. For some people, their own struggles are not an excuse to give whatever they can to another human being in need. They know that "Gens una sumus!"*
*"we are one brethren"; from De consulatu Stilichonis, written by a Latin poet Claudius Claudianus. Also known as motto of FIDE (World Chess Federation).
