China sends 100 tons of humanitarian aid to Cuba for Hurricane Sandy victims
Published on November 22, 2012 Email To Friend    Print Version

HAVANA, Cuba (ACN) -- A plane coming from China has arrived at the Antonio Maceo International Airport in Santiago de Cuba with a humanitarian cargo to assist the population affected by Hurricane Sandy, which severely hit the eastern territory of Cuba in late October.

The plane left Shanghai with 100 tons of humanitarian aid including power generation and water treatment plants, communication equipment, medicines, tents and other items, according to PL news agency.

China’s ambassador to Cuba, Zhang Tuo, highlighted the humanitarian gesture in the context of the 155th anniversary of the arrival on the island of the first Chinese people.

Zhang Tuo said he expected the cargo will contribute to the ongoing recovery from the damage inflicted by the storm, and he recalled that in the aftermath of the 2008 quake that rocked China, Cuba sent a medical brigade to assist the victims.
