Children’s Health in Cuba
Our goal in Cuba is to make a positive impact in the health of children in need. Heart to Heart International will do this by providing medicine & medical supplies to a pediatric hospital in the capital city of Havana.
The first shipment was in October 2015 – a 40-foot-long cargo container filled with medicine and supplies requested by the doctors and medical staff at the William Soler Pediatric Hospital. The supplies will move through our Operations Hub and be shipped to Florida for transport to Cuba. Several shipments over the next two years are planned.
This project has been in the works for some time, and HHI has coordinated with both the U.S. State Department and the Cuban government, as well as with hospital staff to make it happen. The recent warming of U.S./Cuba relations is a very welcome coincidence.
Give your support to provide children with medicine and help HHI as we expand access to healthcare to those in need.
