2 meals/day for 35 disabled Cubans in Havana 2014



In 2014, this project will provide 2 meals a day for 35 disabled people in Havana, Cuba. These people face severe physical and/or mental disabilities and have no way of obtaining food that is not provided by through humanitarian efforts.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

Cubans face many hardships throughout their lives in Cuba. Food rations are meager and food is much more difficult to come by in Cuba when you're disabled. Our organization has taken on the task of providing two meals a day, each day, for 35 disabled Cubans. The people that we provide for have no possible way of finding meals on their own, due to physical and/or mental impairments.

How will this project solve this problem?

Our volunteers in Cuba purchase all of the supplies, prepare them and deliver meals, first hand to Disabled Cubans. With your help, we can expand our "meals on heels" program and begin feeding additional disabled Cubans.

Potential Long Term Impact

Long term, the amount of starving disabled persons in Cuba will decrease. Hope will be given to the destitute and with your help we can expand this program to cover many more disabled people in the future. This program also provides work and a small weekly stipend to those that walk and hand deliver meals in the sweltering Cuban heat.
