As a health professional formed by the revolution in the teachings of Martí, Che and Fidel, I believe in altruism, in humanism and  internationalism, which constitute the essence of medical education in my country, asserting what it will express Jose Marti: “Helping the one who needs it is not only part of duty, but of happiness”.

Thousands of collaborators fulfill the internationalist duty in all the Venezuelan geography and the difficulties do not prevent the fulfillment of our mission, having the involuntariness as a principle.

Lessons of #Love: School for children with physical-motor disabilities in Santiago de #Cuba Via Granma English #HealthCare #EducationForFree #SpecialEducation


The school is located in Villa Elvira, a residence which the illustrious patriot Emilio Bacardi Moreau (1844-1922) had built for his wife’s enjoyment on the former El Coral estate, in the neighborhood of Cuabitas, outside of the city, on Boniato Road.Perhaps the rural atmosphere with flowering mangoes and palms, surrounded by green hills, combined with the care artists took in the decoration of buildings and gardens, including a large central fountain, as well as the welcoming dormitories and game rooms, and especially the staff, make clear that there is joy here.”I think the opening of the school has been successful,” said Dr. Triana Mederos, national director of Special Education at the Ministry of Education, “because these students with physical-motor disabilities, these first 67 from the provinces of Las Tunas, Holguín, Granma, Guantánamo and Santiago de Cuba, seem to feel at home, as if they had already studied here several years.”“As you can see,” she said, “centers of this kind imply much effort and resources from the state, and although the fundamental objective is the physical, psychological, and pedagogical rehabilitation of children, they are not compulsory schools, and require the willingness and close involvement of parents.”She added that “programs and strategies are designed on the basis of the extensive experience of our teachers, precise diagnoses and attention from specialists in Public Health, the Ministry of Labor and Social Security, the Cuban Association of the Physically Limited (Aclifim), with the decisive integration of parents and families.”

#Cuba Shows Positive Results on #WorldHearingDay #cochlearimplant Via Prensa Latina English


After more than two decades of the project, the latest surgery to place the device was performed at the Borras-Marfan Children’s Hospital in Havana on February 25, coinciding with the international day of the introduction of that high-tech product.

This technique, which has benefited more than 325,000 people suffering from deep bilateral sensorineural hearing loss worldwide, reports in Cuba one of the lowest complication rates in the world, even though the introduction of advanced and miniaturized implants requires high-standard surgeries with non-invasive procedures.

R you a millionaire? It is the question that was asked to #Berlanga, creator of the only medicine in the world able 2 heal the #diabetic foot ulcer #Heberprot-P – Via La Mochila Cuba

berñanga1 (1)hb

Humble lowers his head, like someone who is embarrassed because someone call him a millionaire, and replies that his only fortune is that #Cuba, his homeland, patent that medicine. For people like this #SomosCuba

The greatness of this scientist and his humility are his biggest currencies.

Maybe in another part of the world he would charge millions to heal the feet of those who could pay.

Here in his homeland, every time he manages to save a diabetic from amputation, who does not have to pay a penny for the attention he receives, his name dresses in glory.

If I were not Cuban, how many things I would have lost, how much Creole substance, how much laughter and handshakes.

If the stork had thrown me in other latitudes, I would not have grown up with the doors of my house always open in the middle of a rural, quiet and picturesque neighborhood.

I would not have graduated from college without paying a penny.

I would be missing the pictures next to Jose Marti at school, the memory of the  parents tying blue or red scarves around their young childrens necks the euphoria of the neighbourhood after the Stevenson’s fulminating knockout on the prominent and squarejaw yankee Duanne Bobbick, who was nicknamed “The withe hope” and, hope at last, it was eaten by the goat.

If I were not Cuban, I would have ignored the collective joy that is woven around a large pot full of broth in the middle of the street.

I would not know the clatter of dominoes under an almond tree, nor would I have memories of the “Buey Cansao” of the Van Van, the “Nueva Trova”, Palmas y cañas” or even the meteorological statement of Dr. José Rubiera, known in my town as the Hurricane Hunter

If I were not Cuban I would not have applauded Fidel whenever the carapacho sounded to the characters from the North, I would never have premiered a guayabera and probably did not know anything about the ball, staying out of the crowd when Antonio Muñoz the ball burst and Bobby Salamanca shouted at the top of his lungs: “Goodbye, Lolita of my life.” I would not know the congrí, nor the pig roasted in a plectrum.

If I were not Cuban, I could get up early and not drink coffee, I would always speak softly, I would not joke in the most unexpected places, I would not engage in improvised conversations with any stranger at the bus stop, I would not ask the neighbors for salt, I would not donate blood voluntarily, I would know a little less solidarity, I would not go to hospitals for free, I would not have children protected by free vaccines, I would not pay attention to the Virgin of Charity, to the stamps of San Lazaro or to the offerings left in the trunks of the ceibas.

I would ignore the joy to make a constitution and have the right to vote for it, and above all and live in people strongher tha a twister.

I would never have learn than you van live with less but with more pride, that you can block anything but the smile and the desire to live witout pride.
