Mexico sends humanitarian aid to Cuba
Published on November 19, 2012 Email To Friend    Print Version

HAVANA, Cuba (ACN) -- The Mexican Foreign Ministry has announced the departure from the port of Veracruz of a naval vessel, which was expected to arrive in Cuba on Sunday with a humanitarian cargo for the eastern provinces hard hit by Hurricane Sandy.

A communiqué issued by the Mexican Foreign Ministry, reported by PL news agency, explained that the humanitarian aid is made up of 163 tons of fiber cement roofing sheets to restore some 750 partially destroyed Cuban homes.

The aid will benefit about 200,000 families, whose homes were affected by the storm that hit eastern Cuba in late October.

The cargo will be unloaded at the Santiago de Cuba harbour in the presence of Mexican diplomats and local authorities, the communiqué explained.
