The first American shipment in 50 years arrives in Cuba full of humanitarian aid from Miami.
The shipment which arrived Friday carried family goods, food, medicine and clothing, as well as medical equipment such as orthopedic mattresses and electric wheelchairs.
The historic event has not been documented by the press in Cuba. Wilfredo O’Farril said “It’s not in the press. I heard about it from other people. They said it arrived the day before yesterday, I think, a yacht or a ship with aid,” O’Farril said. “Some packages from people in Miami that were authorized to send them to Cuba. We hope this continues, for the benefit of the people.”
