Training Dolphin therapy improves the lives of disabled children in Cuba 

Two females over two meters – receives the children in the pool of the National Aquarium of Cuba, opening a session in which the children touch, kiss, throw balls and feed the dolphins, under the leadership of the coaches.

These therapies are a “complement” to the teaching they receive in their special schools – there are 421 on the island – and they help them improve their quality of life

Girls and Boys with hearing impairment in Dominican Republic will receive medical treatment in Cuba

Through the application of a transducer that transforms the acoustic signals into electrical signals to stimulate the auditory nerve (the equipment is known by the scientific community as “Cochlear Implant”) Cuba will offer full coverage of diagnosis, implants and auditory rehabilitation to all children from 2 to 6 years old who present this problem.

Cuba is considered an example of inclusive cooperation

The Latin American Network of Non-Governmental Organizations of Persons with Disabilities and their Families (RIADIS) held its 6th Conference this week and highlighted the collaboration of the Greater Antilles with dissimilar nations in the field of health and education, among other sectors:

“Cuba has much to teach us and that is why it is a privilege to find out directly in the country of origin good practices that can be replicated for the rest of the region. Especially in the subject of inclusive risk management where it has a school for us and this forum is a valuable opportunity to spread in the region that good example that the Caribbean island provides us with inclusion and prevention to avoid major consequences “

“In the United States, the most powerful nation in the world, when Hurricane Katrina hit that country in 2005, more than 2,000 people perished, most with disabilities and the elderly, and the government did nothing”
