This is a concrete
result of the cooperation of the Bolivarian Alternative for
the Peoples of Our Americas (ALBA) and the Cuba-Venezuela
Agreement, Modesto Maury Prieto, provincial delegate of the
Ministry of Foreign Trade and Foreign Investment told
Juventud Rebelde newspaper.
Among the agreements of
greater social impact is the one in the municipality of
Sandino, with a local support project to alleviation of
anemia in children under five and pregnant women.
This project in Cuba’s
westernmost town creates new jobs, encourages food service,
health and education, carries out maintenance of roads and
recovers marabou infected areas, which are then allocated to
the planting of fruit trees, pastures and various crops.
For the sake of
sustainability of agricultural production, organic gardens
and farms received aid packages including seeds and tools,
and several buses for public transportation were bought to
service the communities of Sandino, Bolívar and Martí, said
This also includes the
improvement of medical services, development of water supply
networks, promotion of export goods and the rehabbing of
houses damaged by meteorological events.
To Maury Prieto, these
projects, funded by the United Nations and decentralized
cooperation of different countries have contributed to the
development of the territory, reported the daily.
