Bertis Mercedes Sanchez

My name is Bertis Mercedes Sánchez Meléndez, I am from Venezuela Carora state of Lara.

Migrating is an action that we carry out out of necessity, since we migrate looking for economic improvement and a better quality of life. My situation changed in the quality of life since in my country Venezuela did not have stability in services such as:  aseo, electricity, water; I think that it is a little more accessible here in Colombia to obtain products from the basic basket. I also believe that the most important thing I left in Venezuela was my family and my home, and this led me to think that settling in Colombia is the best option, since it is the closest country to move to if there is a family emergency or legal.

It has been a bit difficult to control xenophobia, a year and four months ago I had an accident at work and I did not receive any attention from the company and the bosses where I worked, consequently, I have not been able to return to work because I have not yet recovered totally. In addition, I have not been able to fulfill my plans due to the aforementioned accident.

I would like to tell my family and friends to come to Colombia because they are more stable and will be more comfortable and have a better quality of life.
