Cuban collaborators and Venezuelan activists involved in the Cultura Corazón Adentro mission carry out a varied program targeted at various population groups, always under strict biosafety measures.
Cuban art instructors create spaces for fun where they include educational messages on health during the weeks of relaxation of the quarantine established by the Government to contain the spread of the SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus.
Those spaces ‘also constitute a stage to reinforce the value of Venezuelan cultural identity, one of the primary goals of our mission in this country,’ said the national coordinator of the program, Orisel Chacon, in statements to Prensa Latina.
The cultural collaborators also support the performance of the Cuban medical personnel in the fulfillment of tasks such as research, aimed at searching for possible sources of contagion to cut the chains of transmission.
The coordinator explained that despite the necessary adjustments in the work of art instructors during the pandemic, the essence of the project continues, as they take advantage of virtual spaces to carry out other tasks, such as advising their Venezuelan counterparts as well as training the promoters of the so-called Bolivarian hives, a sociocultural project for the formation of values in children and their families, which represents a priority for the mission after the resurgence of this initiative in 2019.
