The son pushed a chair of the father of 500 km - if only he was hospitalized

Strange story from Venezuela.

the Wheelchair of 52-year-old Jose Agustin Lopez places has been fastened by a wire, but he hoped that it will sustain a way to 500 kilometers - so much he should have passed to Bogota, the capital of Colombia to receive the medical care inaccessible in Venezuela, Jornal O Globo tells. his son Hefferson Alexis pushed with

the father's chair on the way to Colombian mountains, holding on descents. The father and the son went through a heat and cold - sharp differences of temperatures are characteristic of local climatic zones. "I didn't see other exit except how to go behind necessary drugs to Colombia", - Lopez explains. Thirteen years ago to him has paralyzed legs in road accident. He had to refuse work of the messenger, and over time life in the city of San Cristobal in the west of Venezuela became heavier: in the country the deepest economic crisis erupted.

At that time Lopez supported mother, the wife and three children, trading in lottery tickets on streets. Relatives and neighbors tried to help the disabled person whenever possible. "But now there is no it any more. Nobody helps anybody", - he complains. Because of long sitting in a wheelchair without access to necessary drugs Lopez had had decubituses. Being afraid of infection with fecal masses, he has passed a kolostomiya, but in Venezuela there is neither left antibiotic, nor dressings.

to It was necessary to impose plastic packages on a wound and to primatyvat them an adhesive tape. It was obvious that to remain in Venezuela - means to doom itself to certain death.

After thousands of Venezuelans the father and the son have decided to cross the Colombian border. Last Wednesday they have left the native State of Tachira - on foot because to Bogota they had no money for the bus. "I was told that there can help with a wheelchair, and it is most of all necessary for me", - Lopez near Pamplona (Colombia) explained. The father and the son needed three days to pass a way which other migrants make in several hours on foot or even quicker by car if him carries: thousands of Venezuelans move the same route. According to the UN, about 2,3 million Venezuelans (7,5% of all population - 30,6 million) live outside the homeland; 1,6 million have left them after 2015 when the deficiency of products and drugs in the country was aggravated.

generally Venezuelans run to neighboring countries - first of all it is Colombia which has accepted more than one million migrants. Many run further - to Ecuador, Peru, Chile and Argentina. "For the sake of worthy life it is necessary to go on the victims. If it is necessary, we with the father will pass through all Colombia. We won't give up", - Hefferson Alexis said, heaving before the next rise a deep sigh. At night they slept on a roadside, being afraid of robbers and wild animals; their mattresses and blankets were blotted under tropical heavy rains. Lopez called the son's act, given up study for the mechanical engineer to help the father, "manifestation of true love".

On the road locals fed up them and gave dry blankets.
