UN gives Cuba $151 million, but how is it divided?

Funds should be spent on projects to improve the quality of life for Cubans. Yet, participating organizations have very close family ties to Raúl Castro.

Cover of the Cooperation Agreement with Cuba

For the next 5 years, Cuba will receive about 151.7 million dollars from the United Nations to implement programs that improve the quality of life of the Cuban people.

The money would be administered by different institutions of the Cuban state, many of which are directly tied to Raúl Castro’s family.

Among the favored organizations are the National Center for Sexual Education ( CENESEX ) directed by Raul's daughter , Mariela Castro;  the Federation of Cuban Women ( FMC) who was presided over by  Raul’s late wife.  His daughter Debora Castro, exerts currently had substantial power within the FMC.

Others include the National Institute of Sports, Physical Education and Recreation (INDER) where Fidel 's son, Antonio Castro Soto del Valle is Vice President of the Cuban Baseball Federation  and is very influential, and BIOCUBAFARMA whose president, Jose Antonio Fraga Castro, is Cuban president’s nephew.

There is also the Ministry of Public Health, consisting of health centers among which are two clinics equipped with the latest technology and supervised by Fidel Castro's wife, Dalia Soto.
