MIAMI, August 24, 2021 / PRNewswire / – When the Heal the Earth Foundation initiated this project, they were aware of the potential difficulties in carrying out their mission and were told that it was impossible to send medication to Cuba. Despite this, they fulfilled their mission again last weekend and donated medicine to help Cubans in need.
The fundraising event was the easiest part of this cause. The hardest part was carrying the medicine in your hand Cuba. A representative of Heal the Earth, Ms. Trimino, visited Cuba of Miami with the drug in hand to deliver it to a small group of Cuban doctors and nurses. Cuba has a limited number of flights in the country due to COVID-19; Trimino’s only option was to fly in Spain and take a connecting flight there to Havana. When she arrived, she had to quarantine herself for a week. Once she tested negative for the virus again, she met with local nurses and doctors and donated the drugs to them. The amount of gratitude from these doctors and nurses was overwhelming. They have a hospital full of sick patients and have little or no medicine to treat them. This delivery of ibuprofen helped them tremendously.
Giving the medicine personally ensures that the medicine goes to the team of doctors and nurses who are committed to helping those in need. Shipments in a large box containing medicines may be confiscated by Cuban authorities or may simply disappear. The risks of shipping the drug are too high with little guarantee that it will reach the right people. Heal the Earth is grateful to have someone who was willing and able to support their cause and give the medicine in hand. As a Cuban woman, Trimino was more than happy to help.
Kristen carranza, Associate Director of the Heal the Earth Foundation, said: “I am very proud to see how quickly we were able to complete this delivery. It gives me hope that our next donations will also go. We hope to continue to donate as many as possible and continue to help those in need. “
Heal the Earth successfully made two hand-delivered donations to doctors and nurses in Cuba This year. The plan is to continue making more deliveries as often as possible. Fundraising for this drug is done through their concerts with the band Miami Blues and on the Heal the Earth website. Their next shows are on September 17 at the Club in Miami and September 18 at the Shipwreckers Bar in Fort Lauderdale.
