Cubans residing abroad visit social project in Cuba

Havana, Nov 17 (Prensa Latina) Cuban residents abroad visited the Cabildo Quisicuaba Socio-Cultural Community Project on Friday, in the context of the 4th Conference on the Nation and Emigration to be held in this capital over the weekend.

At the headquarters of Quisicuaba, in the municipality of Centro Habana, visitors were briefed about the characteristics, work and projections of one of the most sensitive initiatives in Havana and the country, due to its solidarity and patriotic vocation.

They learned about the multiple actions taken to help the most vulnerable people through some thirty social works, including a canteen that daily welcomes over 4,000 consumers and played a key role during the Covid-19 pandemic in the distribution of food to homes.

Among other actions, Quisicuaba intends to create an assisted living center to care for homeless people, and an agricultural field in western Artemisa province to contribute to the sustainability of the project.

Cuban residents in several countries expressed their gratitude to the Project’s board of directors for the support received to deliver donations collected abroad to Cuban territories hit by recent industrial accidents and natural phenomena, and for the daily social work of its members.

They expressed their willingness to continue to contribute to the country by collecting supplies and defending Cuba’s right to sovereignty and self-determination in the face of the tightening of the United States blockade.

At the meeting, they agreed on contributing with funds for the purchase of a truck, which is needed for the assistance work of the solidarity initiative.
