Switzerland Donates 150 Tons of Powdered Milk to Cuba

HAVANA – Switzerland donated 150 tons of powdered milk for social programs serving children, the elderly and pregnant women in Cuba, state television reported.

Donations of milk “have been going on for more than 20 years” as part of Switzerland’s humanitarian assistance programs, with most of the donations being made in emergency situations and the aftermath of natural disasters, Swiss Ambassador to Cuba Anne Pascale Krauer Müller said.

The powdered milk will be distributed to households, nursing homes, boarding schools and people enrolled in the family assistance programs in five eastern provinces, as well as in Pinar del Rio and Matanzas provinces in the west.

Laura Melo, the World Food Program’s representative in Cuba, said the UN agency “supports efforts by the Cuban government to provide food security for the most vulnerable people on the island who, many times, are the elderly, children and pregnant women.”

The ceremony marking the delivery of the donated Swiss powdered milk was held at the comprehensive day care center for the elderly in Old Havana.
