I would like to give you a report about First-Hand Aid’s progress in Cuba and what is happening there. Thanks to our loyal friends and volunteers, we are continuing our journey and our mission: to help the people of Cuba. We are profoundly grateful for your support, and, as always, you are in our thoughts and prayers.
Life for the Cuban people seems to be getting more difficult.
There were two especially significant events. First, I took a walk with Robin through some of the poorest neighborhoods I have ever encountered in Cuba. The piles of trash were mind-blowing to me. These homes were just getting water service restored after two months without it. Incredible. That was only possible because a man from Spain hired a private crew to install a new pipeline. After 21 years of working in Cuba, I thought I had seen everything. Not so.
All the staff and families are doing well, and all send their regards. Amid the daily struggles in Cuba, they continue to be happy, gracious, and upbeat. I will continue to keep you updated. Thank you again for your continued support. We are blessed to have friends like you.
