Celebrating Children's Santeria Traditions in Cuba

On August 30, members of the Faith, Hope and Charity Cooperation Circle of Cuba held a religious meeting where a gift of grace was given to Elegua, an African deity who represents children in the Santeria tradition. This meeting took place with the participation of about 10 children from the community. It was an unforgettable moment that allowed children to reaffirm their religious identity. Raffles and children's games, among other fun activities for infants, were held, and in this way, the activities of summer 2019 were closed.

Later, the adult members of the Cooperation Circle thanked the Egguns (Santeria spirits of the dead) and celebrated with honoring the dearly departed as an offering of thanks and honor to their beliefs.
