 Nomination of the Cuban Medical Brigade for the Nobel Peace Prize

 The Guild of Graduates of Cuba (St. Lucia), is overjoyed at the news that the Henry Reeve Brigade has been nominated for the Nobel prize for peace. Considering all that Cuba has done for us as individuals, for the Caribbean Community, and the world, we believe that we speak for the more than 700 Saint Lucians who have benefitted from the Cuban higher education system, when we express our complete support for this Initiative

We wish to highlight the work done by the brigade in St. Lucia and the Caribbean in bringing free eye care to the most needy among us, the work done in Dominica after they were devastated by Hurricanes Maria and Irma, their amazing work in Africa during the Ebola crisis, and their work this year in bolstering the medical systems in the region against the threats posed by Covid 19 and the global pandemic. 

These examples and many more show that Cuba and their medical brigade are a much-needed breath of fresh air in the current global economic atmosphere, where profit always seems to take precedence over true humanitarianism. Where aid organizations from the United states and others have failed us, the Cuban Brigade has triumphed.

No group of people has proven more selfless where public health is concerned, and we sincerely hope that the brigade, the Cuban medical system and indeed the Cuban people as a whole, are finally given the recognition they deserve. 

Jamal Francis President,

The Guild of Graduates of Cuba (St. Lucia)
