The Canadian Network On Cuba (CNC) is launching the Cuba For West Africa Campaign to raise funds to assist the ongoing Cuban medical missions in the West African nations of Guinea-Conakry, Liberia & Sierra Leone that are engaged in fighting the Ebola epidemic. The Cuban medical mission is by far the largest sent by any country. Standing side-by-side with the peoples of West Africa, 461 Cuban doctors and nurses — chosen from more than 15,000 volunteers – have gone to West Africa and joined the struggle against Ebola.

He also presented me with a sports uniform, a gift from the Venezuelan athletes seeking to win laurels for their country.
I was extraordinarily happy that he made the visit so soon, not only for the honour which his presence and quick action imply, when he is involved in the difficult task of carrying out the epic struggle of Hugo Chavez, as well as the exceptional actions he is carrying out. Continue reading
