  • Trudeau defends Castro remarks

    Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, criticised for fondly remembering Fidel Castro without mention of his human rights record, has defended his comments and said the late Cuban leader had been a dictator.

    Trudeau sparked fury and online mockery after he referred to Castro as a "remarkable leader" and expressed his sorrow at the Friday death of "Cuba's longest serving president".

    Many were quick to point out that Castro suppressed dissent and there was no option for other leadership on the island nation under his regime.

    On Sunday, Trudeau said the statement was simply meant "to recognise the passing of a former head of state" of a country that Canada had longstanding ties with, and not to gloss over unflattering history.

    "The fact is Fidel Castro had a deep and lasting impact on the Cuban people," Trudeau told reporters in a televised news conference at a Madagascar Francophonie summit.

    "He certainly was a polarising figure and there certainly were significant concerns around human rights, that's something I'm open about and that I've highlighted."

    Asked whether he thought Castro was a dictator, Trudeau said: "Yes."

    Trudeau, whose father - a former prime minister - was the first NATO leader to visit Cuba back in 1976, said he had raised the issue of human rights during an official visit to Cuba earlier this month.

    Trudeau's initial statement, which was markedly more positive than most Western leaders, sparked a backlash on Saturday, especially among some US Republicans and Cuban exiles in the United States.

    Canada has long been one of Cuba's closest western allies, maintaining ties after its 1959 revolution. During his November visit, Trudeau said that Canada would maintain its relationship with Cuba even if that put it at odds with US President-elect Donald Trump, who has threatened to reverse the US-Cuban détente.

  • Fidel Castro, Cuba's leader of revolution, dies at 90

    Cuba's former president Fidel Castro, one of the world's longest-serving and most iconic leaders, has died aged 90.

    His younger brother and successor as president Raul Castro announced the news on state television.

    Castro toppled the government in 1959, introducing a Communist revolution. He defied the US for decades, surviving many assassination plots.

    His supporters said he had given Cuba back to the people. Critics saw him as a dictator.

    Ashen and grave, President Castro told the nation in an unexpected late night broadcast on state television that Fidel Castro had died and would be cremated later on Saturday.

    "The commander in chief of the Cuban revolution died at 22:29 hours this evening (03:29 GMT Saturday)," he said. "Towards victory, always!" he added, using a revolutionary slogan.

    A period of official mourning has been declared on the island until 4 December, when his ashes will be laid to rest in the south-eastern city of Santiago.

  • maternal and child health programs in Kenya

    Our maternal and child health programs target the most vulnerable community members, including children under five and pregnant and lactating women.

     

    Kenya is one of the most popular destinations in Africa for westerners, who are drawn by the country’s rich culture, spectacular wildlife parks, relatively easy accessibility and—until recently—political stability. Yet violence following Kenya’s 2007 elections left approximately 1,000 people dead, hundreds of thousands of people displaced, and the nation reeling. Kenya also hosts a quiet killer: HIV/AIDS. With one of the world’s highest HIV/AIDS rates, an estimated 1.5 million Kenyans are infected.

     

    International Medical Corps has more than a decade of experience working in Kenya, much of it at the center of the battle to contain Kenya’s HIV/AIDS epidemic. We are currently implementing two large HIV/AIDS programs. One program targets fishing communities, youth, and sex workers in the western province of Nyanza, Coast Province. The other is a five-year program that provides testing, prevention, and treatment of HIV/AIDS, as well as counseling, in Kenya’s prisons. As tuberculosis (TB) is the most common opportunistic infection among people weakened by HIV/AIDS, International Medical Corps also engaged in TB screening and treatment in Coast Province through a project that ended in 2011. In addition, we operate five emergency nutrition programs for drought-stricken areas in northern Kenya, where Kenyans’ livelihoods have been impacted by unrest and famine in neighboring Somalia.
