A parish in metropolitan Valencia is preparing shipments of medicine to Cuba thanks to the generosity of hundreds of people who want to help alleviate the severe shortage on the Caribbean island.
Fr. Olbier Hernández, a Cuban priest of the Archdiocese of Valencia, has organized a humanitarian aid campaign for Cuba to help meet the need.
The priest is pastor of San Miguel de Soternes parish in Mislata, part of metro Valencia. He is seeking "donations of medicine, masks, gowns and syringes, financial contributions and also suitcases, since that way we don't have to buy them, and can use that money to buy medicine."
"Antibiotics, blood pressure medications” are also needed but "you can donate personal hygiene items and cans of non-perishable food."
