Fundación Cecilia Rivadeneira became the reception place for 34 Ecuadorians who returned from Mexico this Tuesday, April 28, 2020. The compatriots were allegedly victims of illegal migrant smuggling.
Wilson Merino, executive director of the foundation , indicated that they responded to a request from the Ecuadorian Foreign Ministry. In a letter addressed to him, Tomás Guayasamín , director of Prevention of Trafficking in Persons, asked Merino to consider the possibility of receiving the group of Ecuadorians for four days.
This measure was taken taking into account that people arriving in the country must carry out a mandatory quarantine before the advance of covid-19.
Merino reported that the group arrived at the Foundation at 4:00 pm today. “There are three children, 11 women and 20 men. There is a pregnant woman and the majority is from Cañar ”.
For your stay, the Prefecture of Pichincha handed kits food and Patronato San Jose collaborated with cleaning kits, said Merino .
It is scheduled that tomorrow, Wednesday, April 28, 220, the Ministry of Public Health will carry out rapid tests to detect covid-19 in returnees.
