The two institutions told Prensa Latina that the idea is to increase the support for the campaign to collect materials and funds as part of the ‘One million syringes for Cuba’ initiative developed internationally.

Organizers explained that a reception center will be opened at the headquarters of Union Unity National Confederation in this capital, it will operate from Monday to Friday.

They also reminded those who wish to contribute that the necessary items are: plastic syringes, N95 or similar protection masks, face shields, nitrile gloves and protective gowns.

In addition, they opened and published a bank account in which volunteers can make their contributions, which will be used to pay for the freight and other expenses associated with the logistics of shipments, as well as the purchase of materials.

Cuba plans to immunize the entire population with its own vaccines before the end of the year, a goal that generated a spontaneous mobilization in various continents to provide syringes and other materials, due to the country’s limitations from the impact of the economic, commercial and financial blockad imposed by the United States and tightened in the context of the Covid-19 pandemic.
