found food kits being prepared to be shipped to an independent organization quietly providing aid inside venezuela exporter just seeds that immune to says that the u.s. aid could also be imported legally just like any import but there's a reason it isn't being allowed in but i know it sounds paradoxical to talk about a blockade and the media shows that bridge but on the other two bridges merchandise goes through the issue with the political we could find a foundation willing to import it and we could do it legally if they force it in the venezuelan government could argue that it's contraband and confiscate that colombia's foreign ministry says trade with been this way last fall in more than ninety. percent in a decade in this age should simply be let in for years working at this border i've seen the tragedy of thousands and thousands of kids and sick people in terrible conditions i'm convinced that there is no other option but helping the people in need humanity should be above any political and diplomatic tensions but with

10:14 pm
fifty in israel and migrants crossed into brazil now that's a little bit less than it has been per day in the past week but they attribute that to the fact that it's a sunday it's a weekend here as they don't usually get as many people crossing over on weekend days now here where we are this is a processing center that is run by the federal government here in brazil with the army that is supported by you in each e.r. we've spoken to many migrants are here many of them are applying for asylum the putting in asylum claims many of the children are getting vaccinated they are getting immunized because there have been measles outbreaks in the past several months people are concerned about other diseases also pregnant women that cross over that medical care there is an area in this facility where they stay until they are transported by bus to the capital of the state of rhode island which is called vista it's about two hundred kilometers to the south now i guess the thing that i heard today from a venezuelan migrant that really impacted me the the depth of the crisis

a neighbor even israel i came from a twenty three year old venezuelan migron he's a student wants to become a journalist and he said that had he stayed in venezuela that he would have been faced with one of two choices either continue going to school or continue to be able to eat and that's something a sentiment that we heard echoed from many of the migrants we spoke with today who said that the situation is just so terrible inside venezuela humanitarian crisis is spiraling so much out of control that they just cannot stay they have to come here and try to search for a better future learn. that when a delivery might happen. you know it's a very good question because brazil's government has indicated in many occasions the past couple of weeks that there will be some type of aid distribution point will be set up here in a rhyme a state but those details haven't really been finalized and we know that there was a delegation of venezuelan opposition members that were here in brazil they were in
10:16 pm
brasilia in the past week and we're told that there's going to be another delegation that is coming to this state or i'm a in the coming days in order to try to scout locations where a distribution center would be set up and also we've heard this state floated potentially the twenty third of the month is that might be the start date for when brazil with potentially attempt to start delivering aid into venezuela but it's still unclear we've not gotten official confirmation from government officials here we're still waiting and final word we have imagine though the way things are going here and because we continue to see these indications of a real commitment by brazil to try to get aid flowing into venezuela we assume that will be hearing more in the coming days and potentially some type of aid distribution center would be set up in the coming week to two weeks flowing. thank you very much indeed. still to come on al-jazeera on high alert a twenty four hour curfew was imposed in indian administered kashmir. at the high price of high fashion and the environment for activists trying to change the trend
