With all the humility that characterizes a person from your profile, the nun Araceli revolt Arias received the homage of Pravia, Spanish villa that she was born in 1921, and the affection of all relatives, friends and neighbors. “It makes you more excited is not the recognition itself, but have the opportunity to make visible the realities of people who served in Bolivia,” explained one of her nieces, Inmaculada Revuelta, before the start of the ceremony at the Casa de Cultura. David Alvarez, Mayor of Pravia, stressed that this was «a tribute learns more than deserved for a life dedicated to others, with the addition of how hard that is to leave behind your home and your family». Francisco Donate López, parish priest of Pravia, Gimena Llamedo González, Director of the Asturian Agency for development cooperation, and Fernando Alonso Pérez, Dean of the Faculty of Gijón Enfermeria, neither wanted to lose this important event and all agreed in highlighting and applaud the work that Araceli Revuelta has developed all these years. The exciting history of this missionary goes back to his youth, when he already showed his interest and determination to take part in humanitarian work. However, his mother, widow after the Civil war in charge of six children, showed himself somewhat counteracted by their March possible. With the help of one of his sisters, Araceli was able to convince her and, after making his novitiate in Pamplona, was proposed as a future mission capabilities. With a short but intense training of nursing under the arm, the nun left for South America in 1955. His first stop was north of Chile and, after a brief stay in Peru, the aid worker arrived in El Alto, a very humble area in La Paz. There remains since then, more than half a decade later, with more than 1,000 assists in childbirth on their backs and supporting the commanding heights to the 4,000 meters in this area. Neither that nor the age stop this woman’s overwhelming personality, that every three years flies more than 9,000 kilometres that separate the peace from Pravia to return to visit his family. More difficult is it to match Aurora Revuelta, niece who followed his steps after studying medicine and which is now an aid worker from doctors without borders in Iraq. “It always was a great inspiration for my sister, who is also the only one who has gone to visit her there and step has thrown him a hand,” said Immaculate, who says that the rest of brothers have planned to go this fall. After the tribute and screening of the documentary ‘Bolivia, a project of life and service of the Araceli sister’, was inaugurated the photographic exhibition ‘Bolivia, landscapes and people’ of Juan Oltra Riestra, where until July 28 will be available snapshots for the benefit of the mother child Centre Santa Maria of the angels the high, where he works the missionary; This gesture of solidarity is just one of the mechanisms to bring back a piece of everything which has selflessly given.
