Cuba Receives Humanitarian Aid From Mexico

Nov. 19, 2012

A Mexican vessel with humanitarian aid for Sandy-affected regions arrived Sunday in Santiago de Cuba.

Mexican Navy ship "Papaloapan" carried a 163-ton load of asbestos cement plates to mend homes and other buildings damaged by Superstorm Sandy, which swept the Caribbean country and claimed 11 lives in its eastern region.

Santiago de Cuba, one of Cuba's worst-hit city, is making efforts to return to normality with the restoration of almost all public services such as electricity and telephone services, water supply, and urban cleaning.
