Havana, Oct 7 (Prensa Latina) President Miguel Díaz-Canel thanked the World Food Program (WFP) for its support for Cuba through several initiatives in recent decades.

At a meeting on Friday with WFP Regional Director for Latin America and the Caribbean María Dolores Castro, the head of State highlighted how much the organization has done for Cuba in several fields, including family support, the school feeding system, and agricultural development.

According to a report on national television, Díaz-Canel praised the speed with which the WFP has responded to natural disasters in Cuba and noted the program’s support to establish the Food Sovereignty and Nutrition Education Law.

At the end of the meeting, the WFP regional director underlined the organization’s 60-year relationship with Cuba, during which many joint projects have been developed.

The official explained that the WFP is working with the Cuban Government on several strategies, such as keeping food availability in the case of disasters, establishing a climate fund, and micro and macro insurance to support the victims of natural phenomena.
