Message of Congratulations on the occasion of the 63rd Anniversary of the Triumph of the Revolution.
The Cuba- SVG Friendship Society wishes to convey the warmest fraternal greetings to the heroic and revolutionary people and Government of the Republic of Cuba as you celebrate another significant and historic milestone - the 63rd Anniversary of the Triumph of the Revolution.
The year 2021 will certainly go down in history as an extremely difficult and challenging one for Cuba. Having to confront the deadly COVID pandemic in conditions of a tightened economic blockade further tested the resolve and determination of the Cuban people to defend the gains of their Revolution.
Cuba’s resilience in times of crisis continues to inspire us not only here in St. Vincent and the
Grenadines but in other parts of the world where mankind continues to struggle for a more just and equitable society. Having been able to manufacture and distribute its own home grown COVID 19 vaccines and having vaccinated more of its citizens than most of the world’s largest and richest nations, speaks volumes and is a signal achievement of the Revolution. Moreover, it is a fitting tribute to the vision and philosophy of the Cuban leadership over the years.
As friends of Cuba, we are forever mindful and appreciative of the friendship and support provided to us over the years by the Government and People of Cuba. We are equally
mindful of the fact that such assistance and expressions of solidarity that we so graciously enjoy today, would not have been possible had not a genuine Socialist Revolution occurred in Cuba 63 years ago.
Today we are particularly heartened by the fact that Vincentians from all walks of life have recently responded admirably to the Friendship Society’s appeal for financial support to assist Cuba in its own battle against the pandemic; monies we were able to mobilize the purchase of critical and urgent medical supplies for our brothers and sisters in the Republic of Cuba. This certainly augurs well for the future strengthening of the bonds of friendship and cooperation among our people. We therefore take this opportunity to once more extend Happy Anniversary Celebrations and to wish the Government and People of Cuba greater successes as you continue to push the boundaries of medical science against tremendous odds into 2022.
