Camagüey’s work to recover affected schools after hurricane Irma



Camagüey, Sep 17. -Almost 300 education centers were affected by hurricane Irma in the province of Camagüey on its way through the province, a year ago, with the most significant damage to facilities in the northern municipalities of Nuevitas, Esmeralda and Sierra de Cubitas.

From the eight centers that remain to recover, they are currently working on four of them: the elementary school Manuel Ascunce Domenech, the center for scout leaders in Esmeralda, the day-care center Sombrerito Dorado and the joint center Victoria de Girón, located in Nuevitas.

For these works, which are expected to be concluded on December, some materials have been assigned for the veneering, painting and completion of health networks, said Adalberto Barreira López, methodologist inspector of the Investment Department for the Provincial Education Direction, who added that the rest of rehabilitation actions will be handled at the remainder of the year and a part of the 2019, according to the availability of certain deficit resources.

To a year from the ravages of hurricane Irma, Camagüey is one of the provinces which moves forward in its recovering nationally, with the support of the Party and the Government, and also of the brigades of self-employed people, forces from the services to education company, and other agencies.

They improve the school furniture, weather equipment, water drinkers, and in some, new bathrooms are built on the establishments recovered to date, mainly in the town of Esmeralda. Also, some places that used firewood to cook food, now have liquefied gas, all of these to improve the quality of life and the teaching-learning process of teachers and students.
