    Hundreds of Venezuelan migrants continue to cross into Brazil each day, as the standoff between Venezuela's president and the opposition leader intensifies.

    Brazil's government is preparing to deliver much-needed aid to Venezuela.

    Many of those migrants will be applying for asylum and many of them will be seeking medical care.

    Al Jazeera's Mohammed Jamjoom reports from the border town of Pacaraima.
