Beijing, Oct 29 (Prensa Latina) Two Chinese institutions will promote fundraising, contributions and donations to mitigate the impact of Hurricane Ian and other recent disasters in Cuba, official sources reported on Saturday.
According to Cuban Ambassador here, Carlos Miguel Pereira, the leaders of the Charity Promotion Center and the Public Diplomacy and Cultural Exchange Center expressed their willingness to support the recovery and reconstruction work carried out in that nation.
“On behalf of our government and our people, we reiterate our most sincere gratitude for this fraternal gesture, an expression of the special ties of brotherhood that unite our peoples,” the Cuban envoy said.
A few days ago, the Chinese government announced a financial aid to Cuba for the recovery after Hurricane Ian, which wreaked havoc in housing, agriculture, public infrastructure and power grids in the western provinces of Pinar del Rio, Artemisa, Mayabeque and Havana.
On the other hand, Pereira also reported the interest of the authorities of Qingdao city to join a project to create Centers for the Promotion of Cuban Intangible Culture in different heritage cities of China.
He said that now four cities will adopt this plan after he learned of the participation of Jingdezhen, Beijing and Suzhou.
“We continue making progress in an initiative that will undoubtedly contribute to the promotion of cultural integration between China and Cuba,” the Cuban ambassador added.
