Venezuelan Public Health Minister Nancy Perez said that this is the first group of more than 100 volunteers who enlisted to make this task a reality.
Following a departure ceremony at Caracas' Mountain Barracks, the place where the remains of President Hugo Chavez rest, Perez told Prensa Latina that with this mission, the dream of the Venezuelan leader to help other peoples of the world has come true.
