The Legitimate Government of Venezuela expresses its condolences for the sensitive death of the former First Lady, Doña Blanca Rodríguez de Pérez, widow of the former President of the Republic, Carlos Andrés Pérez.
Doña Blanca Rodríguez de Pérez, was the first lady of Venezuela between the periods 1974 to 1979 and 1989 to 1993. In 1992 she faced the military uprising of February 4th, when the presidential residence of La Casona was attacked by military groups that attempted a coup against democracy and the rule of law.
Doña Blanca Rodríguez de Pérez was an example of dedication, simplicity and commitment to Venezuela. Her courage and willingness to improve the environment changed the lives of many through various social aid programs that she directed and designed: Fundación Festival del Niño, Fundación del Niño, Programa Hogar de Cuidado Diario and Bandesir, among others.
From the Legitimate Government of Venezuela we extend our condolences to her family, friends and relatives. May she rest in peace.
