Chile's deputy highlights humanist work of Cuban doctors

Santiago de Chile, Aug 5 - Cuban doctors´ humanisn was highlighted today by Congresswoman Karol Cariola, when she joined the global campaign for the Nobel Peace Prize for the Henry Reeve medical brigade.

Karol Cariola recalled this medical brigade has managed to deploy 45 groups to care for victims of natural disasters and epidemics and is offering its collaboration in 38 countries, with more than 3,000 members, of whom the majority are women.

She noted that they have also treated thousands of Covid-19 patients and saved hundreds of lives, and in addition, Cuban health workers joined 58 nations in national and local efforts to fight the pandemic.

They are, she said, thousands of volunteers who in solidarity proved what the Cuban people have always done, 'expressing their solidarity forged under revolutionary values, which even give what they lack.'

Cariola added that 'the level of humanity that Cuban doctors have and how they have been trained is admirable. They protect people´s health and life and do not profit from it.' (Prensa Latina)
