Peruvian musician asking for help to leave Venezuela he committed suicide
Carlos Fernández Prada lost his wife due to lack of medical attention in Venezuela, and he cried out for help to leave the country.
Peruvian musician Carlos Fernández Prada, who lived in painful conditions in Venezuela, took his own life due to the depression he suffered after losing his wife due to poor medical care in that country.
As confirmed to El Comercio by relatives close to the musician, he could not stand the precarious way in which he was living in Venezuela, the death of his wife being the breaking point that triggered a strong depression.
The musician was active on his Facebook account, from where he asked for help to leave the country, since he only earned the equivalent of four dollars, which was not enough to buy the tickets he needed to return with his daughter to Peru.
“Carlos did not communicate with us for several days, he was very depressed, he did not sleep and he said he saw people looking for food in the trash, he did not want to reach those extremes,” says his cousin Consuelo Fernández Prada, who from Lima He gathered help so that he could return to Peru.
In one of his latest publications, Carlos reveals that he placed an order with SAIME (Venezuela’s identification, migration and immigration administrative service), so that they could issue provisional passports that would allow him to leave the country by land. But this entity demanded that he “prove” that his wife was really ill.
“I do not have money to take them out […] They do not have the money to pay the rent […] I do not want to lose them, they are very sick, I ask for your prayers,” Sai wrote in her Facebook account of the musician and who managed to leave Venezuela on time and now resides in Uruguay.
Now, her 21-year-old daughter, Michelle, has been left alone in Venezuela, while her family in Lima asks the Government of Martín Vizcarra for help to bring her to Peru.
If you want to support, the family of Carlos Fernández Prada opened a savings account a month ago at the bank Scotiabank, number 562-0744051, with the intention of bringing it to the country, but now it will be used for the expenses of cremation and burial.
