The materials valued at 26,000 US dollars were donated by the Saint
Lucian people, non-governmental organizations, charity associations and
different companies, reported the Cuban Foreign Relations Ministry (MINREX).
According to the MINREX report, the donation sent by plane includes
clothing, shoes, food, construction tools and two power generators. A
second similar shipment is expected to be sent to Cuba by that country.
