By Aaron Humes: The Ministries of Health and Wellness, and Foreign Affairs, Foreign Trade and Immigration, today hosted a farewell ceremony in Belize City at the Radisson Fort George Hotel in honour and appreciation of the Henry Reeve International Medical Brigade, 59 of whose professional members served with distinction here in fighting the COVID-19 pandemic. 

The Republic of Cuba volunteered its assistance and sent the group on March 25, a few days after the first confirmed case of COVID-19. The Brigade is part of Havana’s international outreach which has spread to countries in the Old World and the New. 

Minister Michel Chebat; his CEO, Dr Deysi Mendez; the CEO in Foreign Affairs Amalia Mai; and Ambassador Lissette Pérez Pérez, shared the thanks of a grateful nation to brigade members and their government for their cooperation in navigating the challenges of tackling COVID-19 and learning about its management. 

But that is not the end of Cuba’s support, as 29 new members will report to Belize on Thursday morning, January 21. The countries have shared 31 years of medical collaboration, including training and capacity building of its human resources and programs to promote health education.
