Honor to those who deserve it

Camagüey, Nov. 14.- More than twenty local doctors, members of the Henry Reeve contingent, received this Friday the recognition of the Union of Health Workers in the province, for their admirable work in the fight against Covid-19 in different nations.


Coming from Mexico, the United Arab Emirates and Togo, the laureate doctors recently returned to the homeland, after several months of intense, difficult and dangerous work, but upon their arrival they reaffirmed their permanent commitment to Cuba and all humanity.

Leonardo Ramírez Rodríguez, who led the Cuban Medical Mission in Mexico, assured on his behalf and that of his colleagues that they would never hesitate to return to render their services where they are needed, and that the pride of being Cuban will always accompany them.

Ramírez Rodríguez highlighted that with a composition mainly of specialists in Comprehensive General Medicine, the professionals of it successfully performed multiple roles that required their knowledge and will.

This was also recognized by the general secretary of the Health Workers' Union in the province, Irisbel Pérez Ojeda, who praised the admirable role of local doctors.

They, the protagonists of the day, shared their stories and experiences later, in a discussion that took place at the Interpretation Center of the city.  

Among the experiences that marked their lives forever was the welcome and gratitude of the people; "At the beginning they were suspicious, but as they got to know us, as we interacted with them, their opinion changed completely."

To all, doctors and patients, they assure that they are marked by the close link that the children of this land establish for the clinical examination, with the necessary biosecurity measures, but always very close to the patient, even in the face of pandemics like this.

In the same way it happens with the hundreds of Camagüey doctors who in all this time have remained in the fulfillment of their missions outside the country and who always return with the conviction of being useful anywhere in the world. (Text and photo: Dania Díaz Socarrás / Radio Cadena Agramonte)
