With major shortages of remedies, numerous doctors are to intervene in the exodus of beings trying to find a better life abroad
After six years of studying and labouring part-time professions, Cristian Diaga, 24, will shortly alumnu from medical school in Caracas, Venezuela. But instead of continuing his training in a top hospice in the country, as he had hoped, he is taking a position in a fast-food eatery in Argentina- a situation he speaks is much more preferable.
” I do feel bad leaving. I think everyone would like to give something back to their country, but right now it is my life and future and all my potentials to cure their own families to get out of this madness ,” he says.
More than half of Venezuelans between 15 and 29 want to move abroad permanently, according to a poll carried out by the US firm Gallup and shared exclusively with the Guardian.
” In Venezuela, it feels like we are all precisely expiring slowly and there’s no hope for a change. I don’t care if I’m gonna part as a medical doctor or not. I really want to have menu, drugs, protection, a house, a car, and be able to give a good life to my loved ones ,” he says.
