We inform the country with much enthusiasm and hope that, after 4 months of intense work by the Legitimate Government and in spite of sabotage by the regime, we have achieved the necessary authorization that will allow us to use the funds of the Republic, that we recovered and protected from the dictatorship, for the support payment of $300 for the “Heroes of Health”.
As of Monday, the process of opening the digital wallets to the more than 62 thousand beneficiaries of the program will begin and then will begin the required working days to transfer the resources to the digital payment platform, and from there to the beneficiaries.
Likewise, we inform that said license also authorizes the use of USD 4,500,000 to support healthcare cases of Venezuelans who are at risk of life or death, as well as USD 1,182,430 for debts of the legislative branch, including salaries for the years 2016 and 2017 of 192 principal and alternate deputies who were illegally deprived of their constitutional remuneration by the dictatorship for at least 4 years, at a rate of USD 200 per month per principal deputy and USD 160 per alternate deputy.
We emphasize that, for the first time in history, resources recovered and protected from corruption are being used to make direct transfers to citizens still living under a dictatorship, without going through intermediaries, financial institutions subject to usurpation control, or needing accounts abroad. It therefore involves a series of financial, legal, institutional, political, and technological challenges and obstacles that involve a great effort.
We must highlight the work of the Presidential Commission for Economic Development, the Special Prosecutor’s Office, the Liberation Fund Expenditure Commission and the Special Comptroller’s Office, which, together with the Departments of State and the Treasury of the Government of the United States of America, have done unprecedented work.
We ask the beneficiaries of the “Heroes of Health” Bonus to be attentive to the official channels of the Legitimate Government, where they will be able to find out about the next steps to be taken. Likewise, we ask you to be alert to possible false publications and information coming out from the dictatorship, in its absolute inhumanity, to confuse and hinder the collection of this payment.
“Heroes of Health” is a sample of what we can achieve together as a nation if we work together for a free and prosperous country. From the Legitimate Government we promise not to falter in our struggle to reach what the country longs for.
