Washington, December 11.- A new solidarity shipment with powdered milk and medical supplies has arrived from the United States to Cuba, activist Carlos Lazo, coordinator of the Bridges of Love movement, reported today.
“Alert! “Bridges of Love is here again!” Lazo said on his social networks, saying that on this occasion they brought “two thousand pounds of milk, ten thousand acetaminophen pills, and the love of Cuban emigrants who want to put a “grain of sand to help children and those recovering in hospitals.”
He reiterated that with actions like this, “we will fill the blockade with holes!” and emphasized that they will not allow “sanctions against Cuba to kill our children and the elderly!”
The Cuban-American professor, who lives in Seattle, “thanks everyone who contributed to making this donation possible.”
He emphasized the contribution of “Cubans and non-Cubans, people of different beliefs and ideologies united in love for the Cuban family. Thanks to Medea Benjamin of CODEPINK: Women for Peace. Thanks to all.”.
Let’s move forward! It has begun! He added it in his post, accompanied by the hashtags #PuentesDeAmor, #JuntosXCuba, and #BuenaFe.
In August, Puentes de Amor donated five thousand pounds of powdered milk to the island, which went to pediatric hospitals in the central provinces of Villa Clara, Cienfuegos, and Sancti Spíritus.
The shipment also included about 100,000 painkillers, bread-making machines for orphanages in the aforementioned provinces, and materials needed for a house. to take care of Cienfuegos and other supplies.
Within the United States, the wave of support is growing in favor of lifting the unilateral economic, commercial, and financial blockade imposed more than six decades ago by the White House, whether by Democratic or Republican conquerors.
That added to the need to eliminate Cuba from the United States’ arbitrary list of countries that sponsor terrorism.
