The Spanish hotel chain Iberostar raises its bets on Cuba whilst it also takes part in helping with education on the island through its foundation which works alongside the Spanish organization Unicef.
With this intention in mind an agreement between the Iberostar Foundation and the Spanish committee of the United Nations Fund for Infants (unicef) was formed and within the next three years it will donate 300,000 euros to special needs teachers, around 900 students from nine trade schools and more than 40, 000 disabled children.
The document signed by the executive co-vice-president of the Iberostar group Gloria Fluxá and the president of the Spanish committee Unicef Carmelo Angulo facilitates the hotel chain’s collaboration in its efforts to contribute to the development of Cuba, a country where it has been running for more than two decades.
The Iberostar foundation signed its first collaboration agreement with the Spanish committee Unicef in 2012 and another of this type was signed in 2014 which allowed more than 294, 000 euros to be donated to the rehabilitation of 10 daycare centers damaged by natural disasters.
Both mentioned projects benefited at least 2,000 children in the eastern Cuban province of Santiago de Cuba.
According to what has been announced, the new project will help specialists and children in the provinces of Matanzas, Villa Clara, Guantánamo, Ciego de Ávila, Las Tunas, Sancti Spíritus, Mayabeque, Cienfuegos, Camagüey, La Habana, Holguín and the special area of Isla de la Juventud.
The Iberostar foundation, which forms part of the group with the same name created 87 years ago, was established in 2004 with the objective of developing projects which would improve the social and educational situation of people in need and their welfare.Share on FB Share on TT
