Cuba: What it takes to survive when mired in poverty

Via Martí News:

What it takes to survive when mired in poverty

According to UNICEF's statistics in Cuba, no data is available to be able to determine the percent of the island's population that may be living below the international poverty line.

Yet, there are indications that poverty is an issue in Cuba. Some on the island have had their pensions taken away. Others live in substandard conditions.

This video takes you inside Cuba to experience the stories of two women who live in dilapidated homes, with little to no income. One of the women tells the reporter that though she is not a counter-revolutionary, she will accept any aid given to her, so that her children will not go hungry.

In Cuba, there are families living in poverty. The desperate situations leave little room for optimism. Their fight to overcome adversity and survive on a daily basis is touching.

Take a look at how these two women survive while mired in poverty.
