Migrating is an action that we carry out out of necessity, since we migrate looking for economic improvement and a better quality of life...

Delvalle  Aliendres

My name is Delvalle  Aliendres,  I am 46 years old,  I have been living here in Caracas, Caracas, Valencia for 2 years. Being a migrant has not been easy, they think that the migrant here “is frowned upon” and if you are from Venezuela more so because our political and economic situation is complex.

My life has totally changed, in health, physically and mentally from thinking so much about what I have left in my country, mainly my parents, my daughter, my grandson, my brothers and my home, it is very strong and painful to know that you are going to another country where you know nothing and start from scratch. Being away from the family and losing a loved one like your father...  not being able to go and say goodbye creates a great emptiness. On the other hand, I have not thought about going to another country because here I am closer to my homeland and have the faith that everything will change, that at any moment I will be able to return and be with my family again. I have had very few Colombian friends and those who have known me say that I am a good person because they know my suffering as a migrant, knowing that losing someone and not being able to be by their side, that is something that has marked me, they also know what My plans were different, but I didn't get to fulfill them. Because of everything I've been through, my health, my family loss and not being able to have a permanent job has generated in me a sadness and an immense desire to return.

Migrating to another country is not easy and not being with your loved ones is hard, it hurts your soul and to make a decision of this magnitude to go to another country you have to think about it a lot. If I could go back in time 2 years ago and say... What am I leaving my country?... I would say No...
