FRANCE, September 15, 2014. The sending of health professionals to combat Ebola in Africa was highlighted recently by Bernardo Álvarez, executive secretary of the Bolivarian Alliance for the Peoples of Our America, Alba.
If there is a country which has been present to help the weakest, in the most difficult moments, it is Cuba, he said, in a statement to Prensa Latina, during his participation in a celebration hosted by the French newspaper L’Humanité.
The official of the alliance, devoted to promoting Latin American and Caribbean integration, congratulated Cuba for its solidarity.
“This commitment to go where the neediest are has always been the spirit of Alba, and it is clearly what is expressed by this decision made by the people and government of Cuba,” Álvarez emphasized.
During a discussion held at the Cuban international cooperation stand at the event, Alvarez reiterated that this decision is a clear demonstration of the meaning of solidarity, the focus of Alba’s work, serving the less privileged within the population.
