Ecuador's president to make aid trip to Colombia
Ecuador's President Rafael Correa will visit Colombia next week to mark Ecuador's solidarity with its neighbor during this year's disastrous rainy season, reports Ecuadorean newspaper Andes.

During his trip Correa will visit Colombia and Venezuela and will coordinate donations to both countries' embassies and aid organizations. He will bring 2,000 food rations for Colombian families affected by the unusually heavy rains.

Colombia's prolonged rainy season has left 1.6 million people homeless, affected 28 out of 32 departments, and destroyed 1,750 homes.
