The Venezuelan consul in Lima, Vivian Alvarado, stated that “today they return home, with great enthusiasm, with joy, through the Plan Vuelta a la Patria, a humanist program with an extraordinary scope.”
According to the Foreign Ministry, among this group of returnees, who remained in vulnerable conditions abroad, approximately 60 children are registered, as well as a dozen adolescents.
In this sense, Luis Rafael Matos, who lived in Peru for four years, expressed that the Caracas initiative “gives every Venezuelan the possibility of that great family reunion. Thanks to this plan, our desire to be with our families has been fulfilled.”
Since 2018, the Plan Vuelta a la Patria has guaranteed the voluntary return of 172 flights and a maritime transfer of a total of 30,103 Venezuelans from 25 countries.
