Medical Supplies for Cuba Campaign
1,900,000 syringes from CNC arrive in Cuba! Print E-mail

August 17, 2020

Hundreds of Canadians - individuals, trade unions and organizations, from Halifax to Victoria, purchased one million, nine hundred thousand syringes for Cuba to use for its home-developed, high efficiency vaccines against Covid-19.

Today, at the reception ceremony in Havana, Noemí Rabaza Fernández, 1st Vice-President of the Cuban Institute of Friendship with the Peoples (ICAP), speaking of the CNC’s member organizations said, “All of them had to face the restrictions and obstacles imposed by the absurd policy of economic, commercial and financial blockade imposed by the United States on Cuba, intensified in the midst of the Covid-19 pandemic,"

This is a magnificent accomplishment by Canadians who support Cuba in its struggles against the pandemic and the cruel U.S. Blockade, each syringe comes with the logo of the Canadian Network on Cuba (CNC).

Canadian Network on Cuba (CNC) Medical Supplies Campaign to support Cuba Continues to grow Print E-mail

A CNC campaign launched in January 2021 has raised, up to July 2021, over $120,000.  A container of two-million syringes has been sent to Cuba.  In addition, support for other containers of medical supplies and equipment has been ongoing.

At this moment, Cuba is under tremendous pressure due to the coronavirus pandemic and the US immoral, illegal economic blockade which was cruelly intensified in January 2020 when extraterritorial financial constraints resulting from Trump`s declaring Cuba to be a "state sponsor of terrorism" added weight to the US knee on the neck of Cuba.

CNC's Medical Supplies for Cuba Campaign: a resounding success Print E-mail
Dear Friends,

Hearty thanks to everyone who contributed to making the CNC's Medical Supplies for Cuba Campaign such a resounding success. You will remember that our goal was to raise in three months $50,000 for purchasing medicines and equipment needed to compensate for the cruel, inhumane U.S. blockade and its attendant sanctions against the Cuban people and their economy. In the meantime Cubans have kept on thinking and working, striving to create and save, and never forgetting as the central motor of their efforts the idea of sovereignty. Their friends seem to be inspired by this motivation; and, as a result, Sharon Skup, acting again so efficiently as our campaign accountant, has reported that we have more than doubled our goal, by raising $100,711.

The Canadian Network on Cuba launched a vibrant fundraising campaign across Canada to raise $50,000 for greatly needed medical supplies for Cuba

The campaign launched on January 8, the date of the victorious arrival in Havana of the Rebel Army, led by Fidel Castro in 1959. Fidel Castro’s forward-looking policies have led to Cuba’s distinguished medical accomplishments and international humanitarian aid around the world. Cuba’s Henry Reeve International Medical Brigade has been nominated for the 2021 Nobel Peace Prize.
