121 personalities from Haiti sent members of the Nobel Peace Prize Committee in Stockholm, Sweden a letter of support for the candidacy of the Cuban medical brigade for the Nobel Peace Prize, a letter that we are reproducing for our readers :

Letter of support :

“Honorable members,

It is with enthusiasm and a feeling of deep gratitude that we, academics and intellectuals, signatories of this letter, support before the distinguished Nobel Committee, the candidacy of the ‘Henry Reeve Medical Brigades’, a team of Cuban doctors specializing in catastrophes and disasters serious epidemics.

We are from a country, Haiti, constantly struck by natural disasters and on multiple occasions the ‘Henry Reeve Medical Brigades’ have provided assistance to the Haitian people. We do not forget their clear and salutary support for our people during the terrible earthquake of 2010 which hit our nation hard.

Whenever we find ourselves in a desperate situation due to the precarious health coverage in our country, this international contingent of doctors has responded to the call of humanitarian duty. In addition, They have been on the front line to fight the Covid-19 pandemic in several theaters of operation in Europe, as well as in Africa.

These brigades enjoy a worldwide reputation for the quality of the medical services offered to populations threatened by Covid and other health disasters such as Ebola in Africa. They are today a model of cooperation and solidarity between peoples which deserves your high attention.

In a world so shaken up by all kinds of conflicts and catastrophes which make humanity suffer terribly, we firmly believe that a prize as prestigious as that of your Academy, will reward but above all strengthen the efforts made by these women and men of honor to come to the aid of millions of human beings in more than thirty countries : ‘solidarity must be illuminated in the shadow of hope’.

We thank you for your attention to our request, and please believe in the assurance of our respectful greetings.”
