The first two million syringes donated by the Solidarity Movement with Cuba in the United States arrived in the country on July 17th, with announcements of the future sending of up to six million syringes, necessary for the vaccination campaign against the Covid-19.
Members of the solidarity movement explained in a press conference held last Tuesday at the Cuban Embassy in Washington that the cargo was purchased and delivered by Global Health Partners.
Meanwhile, several groups of Americans and Cubans residing in the United States participated in the fundraising, which so far has raised over $500,000.
Medea Benjamín, a pro-Cuba activist, said they will continue to collect funds to also send medicines, including antibiotics, painkillers, contraceptives and vitamins.
