HAVANA TIMES — Cuba is unquestionably a rapidly aging society. The care afforded the elderly by our welfare system, and the country’s achievements in the field of medicine, serves to prolong the life of individuals. This has led to a phenomenon in which families are often composed of three and even four different generations, making the housing situation more difficult.
There is less and less space in the city and the square meters per inhabitant increasingly fewer. To what extent is the migration of peoples from other provinces in search of a better life in Havana understandable and justified? Is Havana not a part of Cuba? Would it not be more advisable to create new opportunities for people, help in the local development and progress of their respective places of residence?
When we go out to street, we see crowds of people who give us the impression that they do nothing the day through. What is their livelihood?
Cuba is a beautiful country. Agreeable environments are to be found across the entire island. It is up to people to impel progress and development for the benefit of their communities. Cuba’s social problems aren’t solved by simply moving from one province to another.
