Cubans in Nicaragua Commemorate Maceo and Ché Births

MANAGUA - Cuban doctors and public health specialists providing services in Nicaragua commemorated the 165th anniversary of the birth of Antonio Maceo and the 82nd anniversary of the birth of Ernesto Ché Guevara in this Central American nation Monday.

The central activity was held early Monday morning at the Ciudad Sandino Ophthalmological Center, the biggest of four facilities opened by the Vision Now program in Nicaragua.

This activity included the presence of Nicaraguan Public Health Minister Sonia Castro, Nicaraguan doctor and deputy for the National Workers Front (FNT) Gustavo Porras, and Cuban Embassy business attaché Rene Ceballo, together with other members of the Cuban Embassy.

Representing the 180 Cuban public health workers providing services in Nicaragua, several dozen doctors and nurses and technicians also were present.

Cuban pediatrician Acela Valdes read a communiqué in which members of the Cuban medical brigade ratified their desire to continue carrying out their humanitarian work for the health of the peoples of the world.

"We reassert our commitment to our leaders, our people and our families to keep fighting against illness and death," the document said, adding that the brigade members condemned the US government blockade against Cuba and demanded the release of the Cuban Five from US prisons.

Doctor Vivian Chavez, head of the Ernesto Ché Guevara Medical Brigade in Nicaragua, told Prensa Latina that similar activities were held in other centers where other members of the brigade are now working.
