Foreign Diplomats Do Volunteer Work in Havana
Havana, Cuba, Jun 26.- This Saturday, convened by the Embassy of Venezuela in Cuba, diplomats from several countries are volunteering to clean up an elementary school in Havana.
altA Venezuelan embassy spokesperson said that this day of volunteer work was in remembrance of the birth anniversaries of Argentinean guerrilla Ernesto Che Guevara, Cuba’s 19th century Independence War General Antonio Maceo and of Ecuadorian Eloy Alfaro.
Other historical landmarks being recalled were the 190th anniversary of the Battle of Carabobo, the Day of the National Bolivarian Army and Labor Day in Trinidad and Tobago.
This is like the 20th time diplomats in Havana assemble for such an endeavor. The invitation read that this was a noble gesture toward the Cuban people for all the support they have given people around the world. (RHC).
