Havana, July 20 (RHC)—A coalition of solidarity organizations from the United States of America announced on Tuesday the arrival at the port of Mariel, in the western province of Artemisa, of a shipment of 6 million syringes collected by their members to help Cuba conduct its vaccination drive against Covids-19.
A news report aired Tuesday informed the initiative is part of a fundraising campaign to send medical supplies to the Caribbean nation to support the confrontation of the pandemic.
