Historic People's Appeal Calling For Cuban Medical Personnel To Help Eradicate COVID-19/SARS-COV-2 on US Soil
In loving memory of cultural icons Manu Dibango, Ellis Marsalis and Bill Withers.
Also dedicated to The New York Assemblyman Charles Barron and Councilwoman Inez Barron both lifetime friends and supporters of Cuba, currently recovering from the COVID-19 Pandemic.
Things are always harder for Cuba. We Cubans don’t even get a break during a pandemic. When Jack Ma, the founder of Chinese electronics giant Alibaba and the foundation that bears his name announced to the world his intent to donate 500,000 COVID-19 rapid tests to the U.S. and a million masks, overlooking the xenophobic and racist slurs of the current Present, he had already done so for countries such as Japan, South Korea, Italy, Iran, and Spain. These were then considered to be the most at-risk countries.
