The Venezuelan Embassy in Honduras successfully carried out an operation of free food delivery this Saturday, October 10th in Tegucigalpa, to extend a helping hand to the Venezuelan community and to Hondurans who have been affected by the Covid-19 pandemic.
The Venezuelan Ambassador in Honduras, Claudio Sandoval, led the activity in which 30 food aid kits were delivered free of charge, with the support of the Venezuelan Engagement Foundation and Venezuelan volunteers residing in this Central American country.
Sandoval emphasized that the humanitarian aid delivered during this activity consisted of a direct donation. “Any aid, no matter how modest, makes a difference in the life of a person in extreme need. Personally, I would love to extend this helping hand to Venezuelans in Venezuela, but this food that we have received cannot be redirected to my country. However, we must not forget that we have more than five million Venezuelans abroad, which means that the support to be given to our fellow countrymen is not exclusive to those who live in Venezuela. We must also think about our brothers and sisters who are going through needs and suffering outside our homeland,” added the diplomat.
Since August, the Venezuelan Embassy in Honduras has been expanding, coordinating and channeling synergies with international organizations that have various social assistance programs in order to build capacities that will contribute to meet the basic needs of Venezuelans in Central America, victims of the complex humanitarian emergency created by the Nicolas Maduro regime.
“For the legitimate government of President (E) Juan Guaidó, the support of all Venezuelans is a priority, not only those who are suffering in Venezuela, but also those who have been forced to leave the country because of Nicolas Maduro’s dictatorship. It is for this reason that today we fight on two fronts: On one hand, we are making efforts to bring about democratic change in Venezuela and, at the same time, we are attending to the extent of our possibilities, the needs of our fellow countrymen in Honduras,” concluded Ambassador Sandoval.
