Hi I'm from New Zealand and my Aunts are in your country for there honeymoon and the borders closed.
I really want them home. In the last few years we have been through so much loss and I need them safe and home. I love Portugal and would love to visit oneday when this is all over. But I need them home. I have been looking everywhere trying find how to help them and I keep coming up with nothing. PLEASE if there is anything I can do to get them back I would be so appreciated to you.

Sam and Sapphy
