Diaz-Canel also noted the connection of higher education students to the coffee harvest in the eastern province of Guantanamo.

‘University students in the coffee harvest, the young present. Students from the University of Guantanamo support the collection in the mountains. A new contingent will join work in entities that pay tribute to food production,’ he also tweeted.

The first massive volunteer work in Cuba was held in El Caney de Las Mercedes, on November 22, 1959.

Che promoted that modality to build the nascent Camilo Cienfuegos School City, built for thousands of children to study from the Sierra Maestra, to the east of the country.
