Venezuela's Vice President Delcy Rodriquez confirmed the news on her Twitter account, saying: "President Nicolas Maduro has approved the donation of $10 million to our sisters and brothers from Indonesia, which will be pulled from the country's solidarity fund and used to attend to the victims of the devastating earthquake and tsunami that caused thousands of deaths and injuries."
