63 Contingent Nordic Brigade

63 Contingente de la Brigada Nórdica

Dear friends!:

The Cuban Institute of Friendship with the Peoples (ICAP) has the pleasure of inviting friends to join the 63 Contingent of the Nordic Brigade, which will take place in the International Camp "Julio A. Mella", from December 16, 2019 and until January 5, 2020.


As it is already traditional, the fundamental 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, in addition to serving as friendship bridge to all those interested in having a more objective vision of Cuba.

Volunteer work brigades, for many decades, have been one of the fundamental ways 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 of stay in a hotel in the province of Pinar del Rio, 16 nights in the International Camp "Julio Antonio Mella" (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 included in the program and emergency medical services for which it is necessary that each brigadier travel with his corresponding medical insurance.

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

It will also combine sports, dance, videos and documentaries, and solidarity days. All of which will bring you closer to the idiosyncrasy of our people and you will be able to understand even more the reasons that sustain and strengthen our Revolution

PRICE OF THE PACKAGE: 507 CUC

The payment of the package must be done mainly by bank transfer so the brigadistas must bring proof of their execution. In case of impossibility, payment in cash must be made before 72 hours in CIJAM. It is recalled as a security measure, that bank transfers and corresponding payments should not be made under any circumstances in US dollars.

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

We request that you inform us before November 10, 2019 the names and surnames of the interested parties, date and place of birth, passport number, arrival dates to Havana and return to each country to organize the arrival and arrival transfer, as well as the pre hosting.

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) to carry out productive tasks

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

The brigadistas who remain in Cuba, at the end of the Brigade, must personally make their visa extension in the offices of the Immigration and Immigration Office, in case they stay longer in the country.

The offical languages will bei Spnaish and English.

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

We wait for you!
