Juan Pablo Guanipa, first vice-president of the National Assembly, toured the “Dr. José Leonardo Fernández” Binational Hospital in Paraguaipoa, and noted the precarious condition of the facilities and the lack of medical supplies in which they have been submerged by Nicolás Maduro’s regime.
“The Venezuelan Guajira is destroyed, it is abandoned, you can see the difference with the Colombian Guajira which has many more advances than ours. This forces us to continue fighting to change this indolent regime and get rid of the tragedy that Nicolás Maduro represents,” said Guanipa from the hospital facilities.
“This hospital served the entire Venezuelan Guajira and also the Colombian Guajira. It was a facility where you would get care,” added the parliamentarian while assuring that “from the diagnosis to the care and operation if necessary for any disease was difficult, but today I see that it reached the extreme as it is totally abandoned.”
The parliamentarian stressed the valor of doctors who still work in this health center. “Here the only thing left are doctors with the will and mystique to attend to any emergency, at least with first aid to refer them elsewhere because there is nothing here”.
Guanipa said that “Venezuela needs a process of recovery of the country. Venezuelans deserve to be much better, the Guajira deserves to be much better, with quality of life, public services and health protection.”
“Let’s fight until Venezuela becomes a country of opportunities, where people want to live, produce, work and that if they get sick they can count on a hospital that really takes care of them. Today that does not exist,” said Guanipa.
