This central province counts with eight special workshops where nearly one hundred employees with health problems are being paid because of their contributions made.
A wide range of activities enables these people’s performance despite their limitations, such as those related to craftsmanship, printing works, the textile industry and chemistry, all of which have been greatly accepted in local commerce.
Deaf and hearing aid-needed people, blinds, those with visual impairments and psychomotor limitations who are members of non government organizations like ACLIFIM, ANCI and ANSOC are rewarded because of their important roles within society.
When interviewed by Escambray, Lidia Veitia Gonzalez, responsible for handicap in EMPROVA -local commercial company, said that in the last two years new posts have being created in the eight workshops for 17 youngsters with mental retardation who came from special schools.
