Havana Food Program Fall 2014 Update

Delivering meals daily to Cubans with hunger
Delivering meals daily to Cubans with hunger

Dear supporters,

In September 2014, we marked the 15th anniversary of the first trip to Cuba made by our co-founders Marc Bohland and Bob Cacicedo. That trip--to visit Bob's family in Cuba and to bring items to the family of one of Marc's coworkers--was the beginning of First-Hand Aid. Bob and Marc saw the great need that existed in Cuba, and they recognized a chance to serve something greater than themselves. Today, thanks to your support, First-Hand Aid is proud to celebrate 15 years of changing and saving lives in Cuba.

Did You Know?

First-Hand Aid provides daily meals to 40 families in Havana through our "meals on heels" program. These are people who do not have the means or the ability to feed or cook for themselves, and would go hungry without this support.

First-Hand Aid provides financial support to 24 families throughout Cuba--17 of which have young children. These families face tremendous hardship from illness, disability, unemployment and/or extreme poverty, which are situations that often are not supported by the Cuban government.

First-Hand Aid employs 5 Cuban staff members, which not only provides us with an ongoing, knowledgeable presence in Cuba, but also gives them steady income and the pride of knowing that their work is helping fellow Cubans.

First-Hand Aid will deliver more than 1 ton of medicine and supplies in 2014! We hand-deliver our medicine and hygeine supplies to four hospitals/clinics in and around Havana, providing both the basics and the hard-to-get medicine that is so often in short supply.

With your support, we look forward to many more years of changing lives for our Cuban neighbors. No matter how small, what you contribute DOES add up.
