Madrid, Spain, Oct 5, 2022 / 17:20 pm
With the increasing number of Cubans settling in Madrid, a group of Catholics has launched the Cobijo Project to welcome and help their compatriots to integrate into Spanish society.
Cobijo was started by Father Bladimir Navarro, a priest originally from Camagüey who has lived in Madrid for three years, along with fellow Cubans Glaisys Carbonell, Yanaika Lafuente, Lázaro González, Ronald Bolaños, and Jany Gálvez García.
The project’s logo shows a silhouette of the Our Lady of Charity, the patroness of Cuba, with the colors of the national flag.
"Cobijo began as an act of Divine Providence," Fr. Navarro told ACI Prensa, CNA’s Spanish language sister news agency.
