Support vaccination against COVID-19

New acquisition (02 July 2021)
6000 tubes and Butterfly vein sets were acquired today with the pledges made to our campaign. These supplies will support the paediatric clinical trial of vaccine candidate Soberana 02.
26 of May 2021 - 50 000 cryotubes arrives in Cuba for the phase 3 of Abdala candidate.
Our association "Cubanos en UK" together with "Juntos x Cuba" - associations of Cuban residents in Europe - and friends of Cuba in Europe, the US and Canada, joined forces to send 50,000 cryotubes to the country to be used for testing immunogenicity in the phase 3 clinical trial of Abdala - one of the five vaccine candidates developed by Cuban scientists- in Guantánamo and Santiago de Cuba. This phase 3 clinical trial is the last stage with volunteers before approval is sought for the Abdala vaccine, in which its safety and efficacy must be confirmed. Efficacy evaluates the relationship between immunogenicity and protection against COVID-19. The cryotubes will allow the serum of vaccinated individuals to be transported at low temperatures (below zero) to the place where the content of antibodies that specifically prevent the coronavirus from entering the human cell will be evaluated.
New donation to complete the clinical trials
Thanks to the contribution of Cubans in Europe and many friends of the Cuban people in the USA, Canada, Europe and the United Kingdom, today we acquired 50,000 cryotubes and their storage boxes, which are necessary to complete phase 3 of Abdala's clinical trial. Cryotubes are essential for collecting and storing the serum used to measure the antibody response elicited by the candidate. This donation would not have been possible without the solidarity and kindness of many good people. We will publish a new update when the donation arrives in Cuba.

Second donation arrived in Cuba today (April 13th, 2021)
As a result of our campaign, a donation of 144 000 syringes (1ml) for the vaccination efforts arrived today in Cuba. These syringes were acquired with the funds raised thanks to the solidarity and kindness of all who have donated to our campaign. We aim to send a second shipment as soon as we raised another 10 000 pounds. We count on you to help Cuba; any amount counts. Helping Cuba, you will also help other poor countries that will benefit from the Cuban vaccines.
First Donation from our campaign is in Cuba
A donation of 200 collectors of nasal secretions acquired with the funds raised in this campaign is already in Cuba. The collectors are essential for the clinical essay of vaccine candidate Mambisa carried out by the Center of Biotechnology and Genetic Engineering.
