      Cuba Solidarity Movement Sends Emergency Medical Supplies to Cuba

      On August 5, 2022 lightning struck the Matanzas, Cuba Supertanker Base and sparked devastating fires and explosions. After 5 days of heroic efforts from Cuban firefighters and the help of Mexico and Venezuela, the fire was extinguished. The fire took the lives of at least 16 people and injured over 100 more.

      From the beginning the Association of Cuban Residents in Toronto Juan Gualberto Gomez launched an appeal for donations to send emergency shipments to Matanzas. Medical donation included supplies for burn victims and other specialized items that are difficult for Cuba to get due to the criminal US blockade.

      In Vancouver, Cuba solidarity activists with Vancouver Communities in Solidarity with Cuba and Friends of Cuba Against the U.S. Blockade raised $1300 to send to the Association of Cuban Residents in Toronto towards this crucial campaign.

      The Association of Cuban Residents in Toronto continues to collect funds to send ongoing aid shipments to Cuba. If you would like donate please e-transfer to asociacion.jgg@gmail.com
