The Plan Vuelta a la Patria continues to strengthen the family gathering in Venezuela with a new journey of 258 nationals transferred by the state airline Conviasa from Peru and who arrived at the Simón Bolívar International Airport in La Guaira at dawn this Friday.
Eloísa Hidrogo, a returnee, commented that she was very happy to arrive again in Venezuela, even though the reason is to be reunited with her daughter who suffers from cancer and is hospitalized. “I wanted to come long time before but I couldn’t do it due to lack of money. I thank the Government for giving us such important support”, she said.
Likewise, 23-year-old Denireth Márquez, a native of Miranda state, confessed that the economic situation that happened in Peru prompted her to return and she was happy to meet her people again.
Another returnee, Raiberth Drago, a native of Yaracuy state, said: “I really feel very excited and happy to have come to Venezuela to reunite with my family. It feels a great satisfaction to know that you are back in your land after four years of having left”.
At the departure from the airport in the city of Lima, during the flight and when disembarking at the Venezuelan airport, the compatriots complied with the rigorous biosafety protocol established to prevent new infections of COVID-19.
With this new flight, the Plan Vuelta a la Patria reaches 25,114 nationals brought from countries such as Argentina, Chile, Brazil, Colombia, Ecuador, Peru, Dominican Republic, Mexico, Spain and Italy, among others, being the the most far-reaching humanitarian repatriation bridge, implemented for a government, in history. With 6,287, Peru is the second country with the highest number of returned Venezuelans after Brazil.
