Managua, October 8 (RHC)-- The Government of Nicaragua has praised the contribution of Cuba to human rights in that Central American nation through its support of social-enhancement programs conducted by the Government of President Daniel Ortega.
In a speech on radio and television from Managua, Rosario Murillo, with the Nicaraguan Government, said that the visit by Kenya Serrano, President of the Cuban Institute of Friendship with the Peoples, is providing an opportunity to thank Cuba again for its significant contribution to the new Nicaragua that has emerged from the defeat of the U.S.-supported dictatorship of the brutal Anastasio Somoza.
Cuban aid programs are aimed at Nicaraguans with eye-related medical problems.
Cuban experts on medical genetics have also played an important role in Nicaraguan efforts to provide medical attention to the population after decades of neglect.
The Nicaraguan leader said that hundreds of Nicaraguan students have completed medical studies in Cuba and are helping their country to put public health on its feet. Many other young people are receiving technical training in Cuba in many disciplines. Nicaraguan experts on seismology, trained in Cuba, are already working in their country in setting up maps of risk areas, in a nation traditionally affected by earth tremors and quakes.
