URGENT - STUCK IN PERU

Great News!

Dear Supporters

Just to inform you that several flights have now landed with hundreds of travellers and our daughter is back home.

Thank you to all who signed and shared this petition, to the MPs who pushed for this to happen, to the staff at the Foreign Office and the Peruvian authorities, to Zoe and Caspar whose daughter was travelling with our daughter and were tremendous in their support and help. It is a huge relief to us and I'm sure, all other families and friends.

Thank you to 38 degrees for helping and empowering people like us in difficult situations.

We are aware that there might still be people in Peru who have not been able to get on the flights. It's important for them to contact the British Embassy, to via [email protected]

Best wishes

Pablo

URGENT - STUCK IN PERU

I would like Mr Raab to help organise repatriation flights for British citizens stranded in Peru. He must intervene to help bring home British Nationals who are currently stranded in Peru.

As you will know the country is in a State of Emergency and all borders have been shut. Many British Nationals including our 19 year old daughter are stranded in the country and in urgent need of repatriation flights back to the UK.

Why is this important?

Hundreds of British citizens are stranded in Peru. Other countries have organized repatriation flights to bring them home. One flight so far has been sent to Lima to bring a group of people back to the UK. There are still very large numbers of people left in the lurch who have had little or no information from the Foreign Office about what is being done. Many tourists have been cramped into rooms in hostels in desperately difficult conditions and some are running out of vital supplies

Furthermore many tourists are scattered throughout the country and there is a curfew. Mr Raab needs to organise for British nationals to have special dispensation for a period of time to travel to an international airport.

Thank you all for signing. The lockdown in Peru has now been in place 5 days and conditions have become harsher and now include a strict curfew. Just to reiterate, no movement is allowed within Peru itself and all flights in or out of the country have stopped. UK citizens are totally stuck, some in very difficult conditions. The UK government needs to organise flights to repatriate its stranded citizens as soon as possible. This is a matter of urgency in this time of global crisis.

To all those who have signed, a huge thank you.
If you could send an email to your local MP it would be great.
I want to emphasize that we are not asking for a free ticket to get our daughter back. We know there are lots of financial priorities the government has. We are only asking Mr Raab to facilitate things for repatriation flights.
