The Minister of National Power for National Trade, Eneida Laya, received a shipment of 12 million toys on Thursday in the Puerto Cabello Warehouse, located in the state of Carabobo.
He informed that the toys will be distributed by the governors in coordination with the Community Councils and the Local Supply and Production Committee (CLAP).
“We follow the instructions of the President of the Republic, Nicolás Maduro, to guarantee a Merry Christmas to the boys and girls and to the homeland. We receive the toys that will be delivered street by street and house by house, he said.
He explained that the broadcast contains educational and musical toys, for infants, and also for the older playful toys, bicycles and skateboards, referring to a press release from MinComercio.
The head of the National Commerce portfolio assured that this social protection mechanism, a prerequisite for the Bolivarian government, has not ceased despite the imperial blockade and the Covid-19 pandemic.
“Many bet that it would not happen because of the pandemic, on the contrary, the truth is that the toys are here and they have already been distributed to 12 states, including Anzoátegui, Amazonas, Delta Amacuro, Táchira, Bolívar, Zulia, Trujillo, Guárico, Cojedes and Monagas, he said.
The Minister reported that the toys will be distributed from 16 December throughout the country.
“We lack 13 states to complete 100% of the regions,” the minister said, acknowledging the efforts of other state entities that jointly made it possible to receive the cargo.
“We are organized and that is what has made it possible for us to fight the war and the blockade. “The president will continue to strengthen the protection mechanisms, the only thing we need is for them to lift this criminal blockade, Venezuelans are growing in the face of difficulties,” he explained.
Minister Laya made a tour of the warehouse to observe the process of receiving the containers, verifying the security seals, recognizing goods and later its distribution in the custody of the state security authorities of the Civil Union-Military Police.
