Liberia appreciates Cuba's solidarity in the training of human resources.

Monrovia, January 14, 2021- With a simple activity at the headquarters of the Cuban Embassy in Monrovia, the code of ethics of the students who have benefited from medical scholarships granted by the Cuban government to Liberia for the academic year 2020-2021 was signed.

Mr. David Kontue, official of the Cooperation Directorate of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Liberia, and relatives of the students were present and expressed their confidence in the Cuban educational system.

At the meeting, the Head of the Diplomatic Mission Mercedes L. Martínez Herrera recalled transcendental moments of the history of solidarity of the Cuban government with the African country, in particular the scholarships granted and the work of Cuban doctors during the devastating Ebola epidemic that hit this country. He also urged young Liberians to make the most of this opportunity for study that Cuba offers despite the cruel blockade of which it is a victim, and to return successfully to contribute to the reconstruction of the health system of their homeland.

For his part, the Liberian diplomat once again thanked the Cuban government for its solidarity and its historical contribution to the training of human resources in this West African country. He assured that the granting of scholarships by Cuba to young Liberians will contribute enormously to improve the provision of health services in his country, and to the strengthening of bilateral relations between both nations.

In his speech, the graduate in Cuba William Wesseh, transmitted experiences lived during his student stay in the Major of the Antilles, and exhorted the new scholarship holders to be not only good students but also integral students who are faithful representatives of their country.

There are now 13 Liberians being trained in the Greater Antilles, all of them in the medical field.
