Father’s Day had a special connotation this year in Sancti Spíritus with the arrival of nurses Lenin Oriol Martínez and Hugo César González, members of the Henry Reeve Contingent who fought COVID-19 in Italy.

Last Saturday evening authorities, relatives and neighbors gave a warm welcome to Martínez and González in the cities of Cabaiguán and Sancti Spiritus, respectively.

They were both members of the medical brigade that fulfilled a humanitarian mission in the municipality of Crema, Italian region of Lombardy, where they arrived on March 22.

These health collaborators made up the first of 34 brigades sent to 27 countries to face the pandemic. They provided medical care to 516 patients and saved 219 lives.

Tras meses lejos de sus seres queridos, el enfermero espirituano Hugo Cesar González López , integrante de la primera brigada del contingente "Henry Reeve" que ayudó a Italia en el enfrentamiento a la Covid-19, fue recibido en su ciudad por familiares, amigos y vecinos. El retorno a casa fue el mejor regalo por el día de los padres para este héroe de la salud.
