This island nation once again kisses her children on the forehead, bids them farewell with pride, and watches as they embark on another journey to where life demands their presence, without hesitation
This time, Azerbaijan is the destination for Cuban health professionals, whose internationalist vocation calls them to heal the pain of others. Thus the 115 members of this brigade are now joining thousands of their brothers and sisters around the world, showing that humanism and solidarity are the most effective vaccines against the new coronavirus.
For the first time, the Azeri people will receive the warm embrace of Cuban medical collaboration. “The Henry Reeve Brigade will share Cuba’s experience fighting the pandemic and will strengthen the cooperation demanded by these times,” Cuban Foreign Minister Bruno Rodríguez Parrilla posted on his Twitter account.
Today it is COVID-19, but on other occasions, it was Ebola, an earthquake, a hurricane, as Cuban doctors and nurses continue the tradition of offering hope with health care, beyond our homeland’s borders. This is why there are everyday more grateful people who, motivated by personal experience or conviction, sign a petition or raise their voice to support the candidacy of the Henry Reeve Brigade for the Nobel Peace Prize.
Undoubtedly, one of the most heartfelt of these statements came from our own continent, issued by the Argentine Solidarity with Cuba Movement (MasCuba), under the premise that, “Despite the genocidal blockade, Cuba saves lives.”
