The Cuban-sponsored eye care clinic a, opened recently at St. Joseph’s Hospital in Kingston, Jamaica, is indeed an example of how developing nations can work together for the benefit of all.
“We may not be admitted into the first world, but we can provide first world, first class service to each other. If together we pool our resources, we can be of assistance to each other in the development and achievements to which we all aspire,” said Prime Minister Bruce Golding, who officially opened the new facility, which when fully operational, will serve the entire English Speaking Caribbean.
The clinic is the result of co-operation between Cuba and Jamaica, and an expansion of a previous Cuba/Venezuela eye care agreement.
“What is really noteworthy is that they (Cuba and Venezuela) have shared what they have with us, and I really want to express our profound appreciation to the Governments of both Cuba and Venezuela for the enormous outcome that has resulted because of this co-operation,” said Mr. Golding.
