Cuba Sends Doctors to Chile

Members of the Henry Reeve Cuban medical brigade for emergency situations left for Chile this Tuesday to help in areas struck by the earthquake and tsunami that have affected large territories of this South American nation.

The brigade is made up of 27 health specialists who were sent off early this morning from Terminal 5 of Havana’s Jose Marti International Airport by Cuban Health Minister Jose Ramon Balaguer Cabrera.

The group includes a total of 11 doctors specialized in different medical fields, six nurses and the same number of technicians who carried tents, sets of instruments, equipment, medicines and even their own food, all transported in two Cuban aircrafts.
