Cuban FM Highlights the Work of Cuban Doctors in Mozambique

Havana, May 17 (Prensa Latina) Cuban Foreign Minister, Bruno Rodríguez, today highlighted the solidarity work of a Cuban medical brigade in Mozambique, where they have made more than 20 thousand consultations among the victims of hurricane Idai.

In a message on the social network Twitter, the head of the Cuban diplomacy added that the Cuban doctors carried out 260 surgical operations in 40 days of work in a field hospital.

‘Just as Fidel Castro would say: In international relations we practice our solidarity with facts, not with beautiful words,’ the Cuban Foreign Minister wrote in his account @BrunoRguezP.

Since the end of March, a medical brigade from the Caribbean nation traveled to Mozambique to help counteract the impact of Hurricane Idai that left close to 500 dead, thousands of homeless people and a lot of material damage.

The group of 40 physicians includes surgeons, anesthesiologists, orthopedists, epidemiologists, general practitioners, nurses and specialists in electromedicine, who joined the 372 employees of the island who serve in the African country.
