Cuban artists visit Haiti to help victims
A group of 50 Cuban artists, known as La Brigada Marta Machado, which includes musicians, actors, painters, and comedians, arrived in Haiti this week.
The group will put on cultural events for earthquake victims in addition to doctors and specialists helping in the recovery efforts. The group plans to remain in Haiti and "promote happiness" as long as is deemed necessary.
Among those included in the delegation is well-known painter Alexis Leyva Kcho, who originally helped organize the brigade in 2008 in response to devastating hurricanes in Cuba, Prensa Latina reported.
