More than 200 mattresses, 72 hospital beds, around twenty wheelchairs and other means and equipment for medical use make up the shipment, with an estimated value of around 25 thousand euros.
The containers arrived last week at a port located in the Mariel Special Development Zone, destined for the Provincial Health Directorate of Havana.
The CubaCoop Armor Committee has dispatched several maritime cargoes in recent years to support the health system in the provinces of the Caribbean country, including the Cienfuegos power plant.
Regarding the new shipment, the association confirmed to Prensa Latina through its president, Víctor Fernández, the solidarity and accompaniment to the largest of the Antilles, in the face of the impact of the economic, commercial and financial blockade imposed by the United States.
In this sense, he announced this year CubaCoop will continue the execution of decentralized cooperation projects based on the socio-economic development of the island.
The organization created in 1995 materialized in the last 25 years dozens of initiatives to benefit sectors such as water, sanitation, renewable energy, culture, sports, health and food safety, all hit by the siege applied from Washington.
