Che Guavero of Cuba


Unbelievable! More than 40 years ago, the then Bolivian Government and the CIA had planned to murder Che Guevara and had Sergent Mario Teran detailed for this plot. But the brave Che Guevara while facing the Sergent told him “Shoot cowardly man, you are only going to kill a man.” And the shooting did not take place.

Now after more than 40 years, the same Sergent, who is now a retired, reviled old man with failing eyes had his eyesight restored free by the Cuban government as part of a massive healthcare program by Cuban doctors in 33 countries across Latin America, the Caribbean, and Africa. The magnanimity of Fidel Castro and change of the mindset of Bolivia have combined to achieve this extraordinary cooperation possible.
