On 13 March 2015, the Ambassador of Grenada to Cuba, HE Claris Charles, paid a visit to the Maurice Bishop Special School.
This school was opened on September 4 1980 by Fidel Castro Ruz in honour of the then Prime Minister of Grenada. It caters for children who have various educational challenges and prepares them for possible inclusion into the school system.
Recognizing the love, solidarity and friendship that Cuba has shown to Grenada despite their many problems due to the US embargo, the Ambassador explained to those present, that Grenada is grateful to Cuba and that whatever we can do to show our gratitude, we will.
There were cultural presentations by the students, after which the Ambassador presented them with gifts of educational materials.
