The successful call of the Venezuelan embassy in Panama showed size of the Venezuelan heart this Saturday, when more than 170 volunteers came to Atlapa, all from different states of Venezuela, to work on the Plan Panama Solidario.
Since 7 am the Atlapa convention center in Panama City had the support of this group of Venezuelans, to assemble the bags of food that are delivered by the government of Panama to the most needy.
Zavarce, also present at the convention center, was enthusiastic about this beautiful gesture: “We are grateful to all of you who, in spite of the difficult situation we are going through as a result of Covid-19, answered our call to collaborate with the Panama Solidarity Plan. Your testimonies are a sign of what we Venezuelans are, because you are giving the best of yourselves”.

The joy of Venezuela prevailed in the place, when the group of fellow countrymen began to sing one of the songs that most identifies us as Venezuelans: “Viva Venezuela”. Yovany Mayora, an outstanding Venezuelan musician, made the moment more enjoyable, with a cuatro (musical) instrument, who through his songs demonstrated that more and more things unite Venezuela with Panama.
On this first day, the mega-bags were assembled, which have a little more product because they will be delivered to the regions. The goal for this day was to assemble 6,000 bags and 7,400 were assembled. “No more bags were assembled because we exhausted the existence, the productivity of our group of Venezuelans was incredible, who put all the love and enthusiasm possible into this work,” said the ambassador.
Many of these compatriots said that in spite of the fact that they were also affected economically by the situation, they decided to come and help.
Ambassador Fabiola Zavarce spent a large part of the day accompanying the volunteers. “The desire to collaborate, to help, to feel useful of all these Venezuelans was evident today, and I know that it is present in every Venezuelan who has been forced to migrate. They just need a chance to shine, and today they have shined and smiled so much that there is no desire to repeat such a beautiful day as this one. Long live Venezuela, my beloved homeland,” said the diplomat at the closing of the activity.
