We're Getting There...Because of YOU!

We're.....getting.....close.....

Over the past three months, we've sent another 150+ cell phones to youth in Cuba.  That brings our grand total of cell phones to Cuba over the past 9 months to 450.

450!!  450 youth in Cuba now have a way to communicate with each other.  They have a way to communicate with those outside of the island.  Most importantly, I can guarantee you there were 450 different looks of surprise when each one of them received a cell phone in their hands.

Our stockpile is down to crumbs, but we're determined to get the remaining young Cubans new cell phones.  Then, we have the number 1,000 in our sights.

Your gifts have directly provided the modern human right of communication to youth in Cuba.  We truly thank you for them and your continued support.  If there is ever anything I can do for you, please don’t hesitate to contact me at miguel@raicesdeesperanza.org.
