Cuba Assisting Angolan Malaria Campaign

JSC: Jamaicans in Solidarity with Cuba

Cuban and Angolan flagsA 145-strong Cuban contingent is currently assisting Angolan efforts to eradicate mosquito breeding sites in the capital Luanda with the aim of lowering the prevalence of Malaria in the country. 

The workers from the Cuban Labiofam enterprise have been committed to their mission, along with Angolan workers, in Luanda since 2009.  The mission covers several areas including the highly populated Viana municipality.  

Alejandro Figueredo noted that three Labofam representatives are working in Viana as advisors with a fumigation brigade. He explained that the work of the brigade is welcomed  by the neighbors in the Madera area given its contribution to fighting mosquitos and other vectors.
