22 July 2011. Havana — Angola's minister of Welfare and Social Reintegration, João Baptista Kussumua, said he had a good impression from the manner Cuba treats its disabled children, ANGOP has learnt.
Speaking to members of Cuba's Embassy to Angola, after leaving that country, following his four-day visit, the minister acknowledged the value given to the citizens, whatever their health, physical or mental state is.
"Our visit to Cuba was very positive, because it gave us an opportunity to see the caring way they treat disabled people and the elderly, children in conflict with the law and abandoned ones, blind and deaf people and drug addicts", said the official.
In his opinion, this work is possible thanks to a great investment in the training of staff, as well as construction of homes, acquisition of technical equipment for each kind of illness.
Angola must profit from this great experience of Cuba in this domain and the existing co-operation between the two countries to solve its difficulties.
