Cuba, Jun 3rd – Miguel Diaz-Canel Bermudez, President of the Councils of State and Ministers, gave a warm welcome on his Twitter account to the 28th Brigade of the Henry Reeve Contingent after two months of intense work in Mozambique.
Welcome to the homeland compatriots. They exemplarily fulfilled their mission in Mozambique. The president wrote when he highlighted the arrival in Cuba of the 40 members of the brigade of the Henry Reeve Contingent, specialized in situations of disasters and serious epidemics, who gave their help to the people of Mozambique, after the passage of cyclone Idai, last March.
José Ángel Portal Miranda, Minister of Public Health, highlighted the work carried out under difficult conditions, as well as the satisfaction of seeing them return with their duty fulfilled.
The gratitude not only belongs to that sister nation, but also to Cuba, he affirmed, because in addition to providing a very positive result in terms of medical care, they also leave a mark of the Revolution and of the Cuban people in Mozambique.
During its stay in Mozambique, the brigade carried out 22,259 consultations and 331 surgical interventions. Likewise, actions were developed to confront malaria, an activity in which more than 17,000 homes were visited and more than 50,000 people were benefited.
Cuba does not know hatred, but infinite love and dedication for the most needy, said Dr. Rolando Piloto, Chief of the brigade, on behalf of the new arrivals.(Radio Rebelde)
