Solidarity brigades in touch with Cuba’s reality

Havana, Apr 25 (Prensa Latina) Members of the May Day and Ernesto Che Guevara International Solidarity Brigades are visiting the central province of Cienfuegos on Thursday and participating in productive work days in western Pinar del Río province.

During this day, members of the 17th May Day International Brigade of Volunteer Work and Solidarity with Cuba will visit productive, cultural, educational, and healthcare centers and the small-sized Specialized Design Enterprise (MIPYME) in Cienfuegos.

More than 40 members of the Ernesto Che Guevara Brigade will do volunteer work to clean and maintain the Ernesto Che Guevara Electronic Components Plan in Pinar del Río province, which manufactures solar panels, toner cartridges for printers, and a wide range of other products.

They will also visit the Pedro Junco Cultural Center and the headquarters of the Hermanos Saíz Association (AHS, in Spanish) to interact with the artistic and cultural artists of the province.

Convened by the Cuban Institute for Friendship with Peoples (ICAP), the two brigades bring together more than 280 friends from 24 nations.

Until May 7, both groups will participate in conferences on geopolitics, the challenges of the Cuban economy, the role of young people in society, cultural development, and will continue visiting productive, healthcare, cultural, and educational centers.
