A friend of mine from Portugal is currently hospitalized with pneumonia near Havana, Cuba. The problem is that they don't have the medication/antibiotic that she needs available and her situation is getting worse by the day.
Is there any way, any service, to transport the required medication from some other place close by, like the USA (Miami is the closest major city I can think of), to the hospital in Havana?
The Portuguese embassy is already informed about the situation, but so far there is no concrete action being taken in this direction. The hospital says she cannot travel like this, so it's likely that she will need the medication first before transporting her back to Portugal.
Does anyone have any ideas as to what can be done to get my friend the help/medication she needs in Cuba?
I'm asking here, because we're running out of ideas here at the moment and any suggestions would be appreciated.
Good news, the hospital managed to procure more of the antibiotic for intravenous application. Thanks everyone for the input! Even though helping from far away isn't always possible or easy, at least trying doesn't make one feel completely useless or helpless.
