Roberto Morales Ojeda, member of the Political Bureau and Secretary for Organization and Politics of the Central Committee, described the program of differentiated attention to highly complex communities in Guantánamo, as “a clear and well-thought-out response to the agreements and guidelines of the VIII Congress of the Communist Party of Cuba”.
The political leader presented the criteria during the visit to the Arroyo Hondo district, one of the 29 demarcations of the head municipality of the province included in this Program and which is a pioneer in actions to raise the quality of life of its population and consolidate the conquests of the Revolution in the Upper East.
Accompanied by Rafael Pérez Fernández, member of the Central Committee and first secretary in the province, and Governor Emilio Matos Mosqueda, Morales Ojeda received a detailed explanation about the characteristics of the place, nestled in the middle of the arid southern coastal strip.
Among its vulnerabilities, the poor condition of the housing fund and the susceptibility of the town to floods were cited, due to the presence of the river current of the same name that runs through it, according to what was raised by Yucleidis Ramìrez Ramírez, first secretary of the Party in the municipality , and Oscar González Fournier, delegate of that constituency.
In these margins a monument to the Cuban colonel of the three wars, Arcid Duvergié Lafargue, who fell in combat in that place on April 25, 1895, is erected, to whom every year the town, the municipality and the province pay tribute.
The member of the Political Bureau was imposed on the support for this purpose of changes in this town, in which Ramiro Rodriguez Pérez, director of the Guantánamo Sugar Company (EAG), is an enthusiastic participant, in charge of the transformation of the access road to Arroyo Hondo
Shortly before completing the week of starting this task, the embankment is passable, without using other resources than those required by the use of motor graders and other equipment, and with the active participation of the beneficiaries.
The party leader was also informed about the houses that will be rehabilitated or expanded with their own effort, and to which several EAG workers will contribute in a leading and exemplary way.
It was also known that the premises where construction materials were previously sold will be recovered, an activity interrupted due to COVID-19, and that it must be restored shortly.
He verified the pertinent decisions applied to raise the living standards of the inhabitants: the rescue of water, the improvement of the electrical service and the realization of the productive pole of Arroyo Hondo, about which Pérez Fernández gave him some details.
Long before the program began, in the area -as well as others of the Paraguay Popular Council- irrigation systems were rescued and other hydraulic actions were carried out for the supply of water in the area where it rains less in Cuba and in which evapotranspiration far exceeds precipitation. .
He added that from this month and until February (cold season), the Guantanamo residents will have to plant 16,222.5 hectares (ha), almost two thousand hectares more than in the same previous period, and of which a figure close to seven One thousand will be dedicated to food, 4,676 to vegetables and 4,500 to grains and fruits.
Morales Ojeda also praised in the Guantanamo project the priority it gives to the housing fund, in which the dirt floors are about to be eradicated, and the renovation of public lighting, the revival of services, and the promotion of jobs in the sector. productive, especially for young people.
He considered the active participation of the population and community factors (the zonal nuclei, blocks of the FMC, the CDR and the Association of Combatants of the Cuban Revolution), together with the delegate and the president of the Popular Council, in the large tasks that lie ahead, the fruits of which will not take long “if they continue to work with that determination and diligence.”
On the verge of saying goodbye to that community, he described it as deeply patriotic, due to its roots and where the constructive hustle, enthusiasm and gratitude to the Revolution surface at a glance, and stated that it would be desirable to “involve social workers more in this task. , which, like many others, the Revolution has entrusted to them and they have complied with “.
