The Cuban Institute of Friendship with the Peoples (ICAP) is pleased to invite friends to be part of the 64 Nordic Brigade Contingent, which will take place at the "Julio A. Mella" International Camp (CIJAM), from December 14, 2020 to January 3, 2021.

As is traditional, the main objective of this program of activities will be to share with friends another anniversary of the triumph of the Revolution, providing them with a greater knowledge of the reality of our people and the results achieved in these years, as well as serving as Bridge of friendship to all those interested in having a more objective vision of Cuba.

The volunteer work brigades, for many decades, have been one of the fundamental avenues that have contributed to the expansion of the Solidarity Movement and to strengthen friendship and mutual knowledge between Cuba and the other peoples of the world.

The cost of the program includes transfer from and to the airport, 5 nights in a hotel in the provinces of Villa Clara and Cienfuegos, 16 nights at the "Julio Antonio Mella" International Camp (CIJAM), located in Guayabal, Caimito, Artemisa Province , 40 km from the capital, with accommodation in shared rooms with capacity for 6 people, food (full board), transportation to the activities contemplated in the program and emergency medical services for which it is necessary that each brigade travel with your corresponding medical insurance.

During the period an interesting cycle of conferences will be offered, meetings with political and mass organizations will be held, 8 voluntary working days will be held in agriculture and places of a historical, social and cultural nature will be visited, among other options.

Sports, dance activities, video and documentary projection, and solidarity days will also be combined. All of which will bring them closer to the idiosyncrasy of our people and they will be able to understand even more the reasons that sustain and strengthen our Revolution.

The CIJAM provides 24-hour emergency medical services, cafeteria, bar, shop, national and international telephony, Internet-WIFI services, email and safe for personal documents and valuables.

PACKAGE PRICE: $ 495.00 CUC. The payment of the package must be made primarily by bank transfer so the brigade must bring proof of execution. In case of impossibility, payment in cash must be made within 72 hours of arrival at CIJAM. It is recalled as a security measure that bank transfers and corresponding payments should not be made under any circumstances in US dollars.

Each brigadista must bring 2 photos size 4 X 4 cm. for the card that accredits him as a member of the "Nordic Brigade", appropriate clothing and shoes (long-sleeved shirt, long pants, gloves, work shoes and hat or cap) to perform productive work.

For the planned sporting events (Friendship Race and Football Meeting) the brigades must come prepared properly and, if possible, bring along some sports equipment such as soccer balls, whistles, knee pads, among others.

The brigades who remain in Cuba, at the end of the Brigade, must personally make their visa extension at the offices of the Immigration and Foreigners Directorate, if they stay longer in the country.

The official language will be English.

We would like to have your presence and share with you what has traditionally been, an unforgettable experience.

We wait for you!
