Salvadorans in Cuba for eye operations

A group of 50 Salvadorians arrived in Havana Thursday to benefit from the Operation Miracle program boosted by Cuba and Venezuela, which has permitted millions of people to recover their vision.

"We completely trust Cuban doctors," Danilo Morales, one of the patients waiting to be operated on for pterigium (granulated tissue) told Prensa Latina.

Salvadorian Manuel Antonio Monje said he was thankful for this opportunity to undergo treatment in the island, part of this initiative within the integrationist project of the Bolivarian Alternative for the Americas (ALBA).

"We will give the Salvadorian government the message of what Cuban and Venezuelan governments do for the well-being of humanity with this health program," the old man said.

The Salvadorian group was welcomed at Jose Marti International Airport by social workers, who support Operation Miracle.
