Canadian medical donation arrives in Cuba

Holguin-Donativo-Cubanos-CanadaToronto´s ‘Juan Gualberto Gómez’ Association of Cuban Residents on Saturday made a donation of medical supplies to Cuba´s Holguín health centers for preventing and controlling the Covid-19 pandemic.

On Facebook, the Canadian association announced Saturday afternoon the arrival of syringes, gloves, medicines, face masks, bandages, gauze and disposable gowns, among other necessary medical supplies, at Holguín´s ‘Frank País’ International Airport.

Dr. Rebeca Robles, official of Holguin’s Provincial Direction of Public Health, recognized the Canadian association´s altruistic donation worth over $65,000. This medical donation will be sent to Holguín Children´s Hospital.

‘This is an example of the ¨Bridge of Love¨ program among brotherly nations, as the US blockade against Cuba is tightened and damages the purchasing of pivotal resources to cover medical and hospital assistance for over one million inhabitants.’
