Pretoria, May 30 (Prensa Latina) The Cuban international medical brigade specializing in disasters and serious epidemics ‘Henry Reeve’ deserves the Nobel Peace Prize, said the prominent politician Phatse Justice Piitso in South Africa.

In a personal public letter, the current Chief of Staff of the office of the Secretary General of the African National Congress, explains that the initiative, supported in more than 50 countries, is a recognition ‘of the extraordinary humanitarian efforts of this brigade throughout the world in the fight’ against the Covid-19 pandemic.

Likewise, the nomination is a recognition of the leadership of the Cuban Revolution in our struggle for the advancement of human solidarity and internationalism, he added.

In fact, the so-called White Robe Army is planting the revolutionary seeds of solidarity and internationalism in the streets and homes of the world.

The Henry Reeve Brigade, Justice Piitso emphasizes, has repeatedly demonstrated over decades that quality health care can be definitively and permanently established internationally as an inalienable human right.

Since its creation, the Brigade’s medical staff, ‘now comprised of 7,400 volunteer health care workers,’ has fought to ensure that people around the world get better health care.
