Arturo Aguirre, who heads the Love for Cuba Association, told Prensa Latina that since the beginning of the campaign on April 25, solidarity organizations and Cubans living in Nicaragua have already sent to Panama the monetary equivalent for the purchase of half a million syringes.
Initially, the Latin American solidarity crusade set the goal of sending one million units to Cuba to support vaccination against the SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus, the cause of the global pandemic, a goal that has already been surpassed.
A caravan around the perimeter of Managua’s largest recreational complex, aboard a tourist bus, bicycles and automobiles, will be the novel component of the action against the US blockade against Cuba, which is part of the Building Bridges of Love worldwide movement, Aguirre explained.
For those who have not been able to make a donation so far, the organizers have set up some collection boxes for that purpose.
The Association of Cubans Residents in Nicaragua and nearly 20 organizations that make up the Augusto C. Sandino Anti-imperialist Network of Solidarity with the Peoples have shared efforts in the campaign.
