The Cuban official met with the president of CubaCoop, Victor Fernandez. The session was celebrated at the headquarters of the Cuban Embassy in France. The president of the association commented to the Cuban ambassador on the details of the donation and CubaCoop’s project to support the socio-economic development of the island.
Fernandez revealed that at least 25,000 euros are earmarked for the National Institute of Hydraulic Resources to carry out water and sanitation works in Matanzas after the supertanker base fire destroyed the area industry and caused the loss of human life.
The head of CubaCoop clarified that the remaining 20,000 euros were allocated thanks to a public collection launched by the association, which provided 10,000 in support of the fire caused in the industrial zone of Matanzas. This initiative was supported by the contribution of dozens of French citizens.
