HAVANA, Cuba, Jul 2 (ACN) The thirtieth United States-Cuba Friendship Caravan, organized by IFCO/Pastors for Peace, concludes on Monday its journey in the province of Cienfuegos, with a visit to the Vilma Espín school which is dedicated to the education of autistic children.
The educational center is one of the three existing in the country, and the smallest in enrollment in relation to those located in Holguín and Havana.
In this Cienfuegos school they offer personalized attention to the students, who suffer different levels of autism.
During their stay in Cienfuegos since June 30, the caravanistas visited the Gustavo Aldereguía Lima provincial hospital, the urban center of the city and its architectural jewels, and held exchanges with the Federation of Cuban Women, the Central Workers and the Committees for the Defense of the Revolution.
They had previously attended a productive work in an agricultural production cooperative and the Santa Bárbara town hall in the municipality of Palmira.
In July 2004 Pastors for Peace visited this place for the first time, led by Lucius Walker and 15 years later his daughter Gail Frances Walker, returns to the front of the caravanistas to maintain the message of solidarity, love and peace, built by his father and followed by thousands of men and women to Cuba.
