Toronto´s ‘Juan Gualberto Gomez’ Association of Cuban Residents on Saturday made a donation of medical supplies to Cuba´s Holguin health centers for preventing and controlling the COVID-19 pandemic.
On Facebook, the Canadian association announced Saturday afternoon the arrival of syringes, gloves, medicines, face masks, bandages, gauze and disposable gowns, among other necessary medical supplies, at Holguin´s ‘Frank Pais’ International Airport.
Dr. Rebeca Robles, official of Holguin’s Provincial Direction of Public Health, recognized the Canadian association´s altruistic donation worth over $65,000. This medical donation will be sent to Holguin Children´s Hospital.
‘This is an example of the ¨Bridge of Love¨ program among brotherly nations, as the US blockade against Cuba is tightened and damages the purchasing of pivotal resources to cover medical and hospital assistance for over one million inhabitants.’
