For the moment, the Cuban associations in Belgium CubaBel and the Netherlands Cuba in my Soul participate, as well as the Belgians Cubanismo.be, Los Amigos de Cuba and the Coordinadora Latinoamericana de Solidaridad, but we are in talks with others, Romero told Prensa Latina.

According to the member of CubaBel, medical supplies are obtained from funds collected or by donations from hospitals and institutions.

Among the priorities are needles and syringes, in order to support vaccination against Covid-19, he advanced in reference to the beginning in the coming weeks of immunization with its own products in the Caribbean country, whose government announced the objective of protecting the entire population this year.

Romero commented that the initiative is at an advanced stage, with a view of shipping the container by the end of April, in the midst of a complicated scenario due to the impact of the pandemic in Europe.

The coordinator mentioned among the campaign’s outreach actions his presence this week on a station in Brussels that broadcasts in Spanish, to talk about the campaign and the economic, commercial and financial blockade imposed by the United States on Cuba.

Similar mobilizations of solidarity with the island were announced in recent days in Canada, Chile, Panama and other countries, focused on supporting vaccination to stop Covid-19.
