A number of Caribbean countries such as Barbados, Saint Kitts and Nevis, Saint Lucia, and Saint Vincent and the Grenadines are making arrangements to send 3,500 kg of medical supplies to Cuba. The aid will be send through a humanitarian airlift of the Bank of ALBA, which will be executed by the Venezuelan national airline Conviasa.
The Bank of ALBA made the announcement through a post in its Twitter account: “Thanks to the solidarity of Barbados, Saint Kitts and Nevis, Saint Lucia, and Saint Vincent and the Grenadines, 3,500 kg of medical supplies will be sent to our brothers and sisters of Cuba, via a humanitarian airlift by Bank of ALBA and Conviasa.”

Argentina has also sent a shipment of humanitarian aid to Cuba this week, with more than half a million syringes, as well as masks, disposable gowns, gloves and other materials to support the vaccination process in the midst of the pandemic and the US blockade.
