Reinaldo Romero, coordinator of the Cuba Soberana project, told Prensa Latina that the day will be dedicated to transport the shipment from Belgian cities like Brussels, Bruges, Ghent and Antwerp to Rotterdam, in the neighboring Netherlands, from where it will soon leave for its destination.

Cardiology equipment, hospital furniture, wheelchairs, bathtubs for the elderly, 120,000 health masks, surgical gloves and medicines, among other resources, are part of the new shipment, which follows two donations in July.

According to Romero, it has been months of work to collect the aid, in an initiative that brings together Cubans and Belgians who are aware of the situation in Cuba, hit not only by the Covid-19 pandemic, as the rest of the world, but also by the tightening of the economic, commercial and financial blockade imposed by the United States for six decades.

According to the coordinator of the initiative, the idea is that it lasts over time, beyond the current context of the pandemic.
