(Rough translation of an article from a Cuban Newpaper by Google Translate)

Students and workers from May Day Polytechnic and Computer School helped 
in the recovery of educational centers affected by hurricanes in the 
town of Pinar del Rio.

For example in a special school Anton Makarenko a brigade of 50 builders 
helped with unit maintenance and repair of schools of Havana have the 
support of 27 majors power the polytechnic vueltabajero May Day.

Winds blew off the roof of Anton MakarenkoSchool, and carpentry was 
severely damaged, but between Havana and Pinar del Rio the center, which 
had been scheduled for repair in 2009, will be like new, even with 
inside bathrooms bedrooms.
Dyan Valdés García, professor of Mayday Polytechnic, said that students 
work in what we have to do from scratch walls with spatula until load 
blocks, fibers and debris.

Angel Lopez Mirabal, provincial director of education, marked the 
decisive support recuperative tasks of students, workers and community, 
enabled by parent councils in the affected areas.

In Vueltabajo 627 schools, 937 were damaged, and are already recuparadas 
135. Numerous alternatives are applied to the development of the school 
year and despite the scale of the damage only six still not working, but 
working to do so as quickly as possible, one of which is the secondary 
field Barroso Oto in Marbajita, La Palma whose roofs were torn and has 
an enrollment of over 500 students from the municipality and Bahia Honda.

Management meant that the sector priority country knowing that it 
largely depends on the stability of the family, especially those who 
suffered damage to their homes.

The province received 17,700 fibers of asbestos cement, 45 cubic meters 
and about four thousand gutters, media resources transferred to the FAR, 
the transport sector and the industry Vueltabajo country level.
