The story of the David project was published by Lazo on Facebook and has reached over 1,000 comments.
According to the story, David explained to his classmates and teachers how he managed in the last few months to collect flour, yeast and a bread machine to take it to Matanzas´ Children´s Home.
“My goal is to collect flour for a whole year and send it to foster homes in Cuba, so Cuban children living in those sites will have flour and prepare their own bread every single morning to have breakfast,” said David.
Lazo stated that David “is a special child” with a stage fright personality and that “sometimes he gets stuck for words”, but showed self-confidence during his presentation. He (David) said that major inspiration for his project is to build bridges of love alongside his teacher.
After the publication, the story was positively supported.
“Professor, your students are today only proving what you have taught them, above all things and above all ideologies, love for others is the most important thing. Thanks for your humility and love for others. Let’s continue building bridges of love! Let’s dilute resentment and adversity,” user Sara Paz Bello tweeted.
Meanwhile, others thanked David for his tenderness and idea: “Thank you David for your beautiful project and your solidarity with Cuban children,” said Maritza Garcia.
The Bridges of Love movement is one of the most active groups within the United States in the struggle against the hostile blockade imposed by the United States on Cuba for over 60 years ago and in the fight for rapprochement and normalization of bilateral relations between the two countries.
