“Cuba is facing a shortage when it comes to administering the COVID-19 vaccine.

On Tuesday, thanks to thousands of generous citizens, the United States is lending a hand.

Six million syringes of the coronavirus vaccine are on their way to Cuba after half a million dollars was donated, five times the goal of $100,000 that organizers had hoped to reach.

“The donations pouring in from Hialeah, from Miami from Fort Lauderdale from the places where Cuban Americans lives,” said organizer Medea Benjamin.

The vaccines should make a big difference for those in Cuba amid the pandemic and with the new Delta Variant spreading.

“These syringes will allow Cubans to continue to inoculate and vaccinate it’s population,” said Felix Sharpe-Caballero with the COVID-19 Vaccination Campaign”
