Solidarity with Cuba

Canadian Solidarity Network to Send Significant Shipment of Medical Supplies to Cuba

The Canadian Network on Cuba (CNC) is readying the shipment of a container to Cuba with 1,920,000 syringes to support that country's vaccination program against COVID-19. The initiative is part of the fundraising campaign launched by the CNC on January 8 aimed at sending medical supplies to Cuba. This solidarity campaign has received the support of many Canadian friends, Cubans and citizens of other countries residing in Canada.

In announcing this action in solidarity with the Cuban people, the CNC recognized Cuba's achievements in health care and their contributions to other nations during the pandemic.

The shipment is greatly appreciated by Cuba which faces a double pandemic: COVID-19 and the brutal blockade by the United States. As a result of the U.S. blockade, which has intensified to unprecedented levels, Cuba has been unable to acquire medicines and medical equipment necessary to face the COVID-19 pandemic, in addition to the economic hardships caused by the illegal U.S. blockade. All of this is creating great suffering for the Cuban people.

On behalf of the Cuban people, the Embassy of Cuba in Canada thanked the CNC and contributors to the campaign for their solidarity.
