Return to homeland: a new beginning
Since last August, the Venezuelan government has responded in an original way to the situation of vulnerability of thousands of its nationals who are trapped in countries where they migrated but did not obtain humane opportunities, and where they were attacked, exploited and criminalized. The Return to the Homeland Plan (Plan
Vuelta a la Patria), created by President Nicolás Maduro, establishes an air and land bridge for the voluntary return of those migrants and their families who lack their own means of return, and incorporates them into social programs, which are the most extensive in the continent. In less than two months, more than 7,000 migrants from eight countries have returned to their land to work for their families and the future of their homeland, which welcomes them with love and respect. This represents a new beginning for the sons and daughters of Simón Bolívar.
