Humanitarian aid for Cuba

Crowdfunding campaign to collect donations for medical aid for Cuban hospitals.

Following the devastating oil tank fire in Matanzas, we have launched a crowdfunding campaign to collect donations for medical aid for Cuban hospitals that are treating the victims. The fire started on Friday 5 August after lightning hit an oil tank, the fire spread causing a series of explosions and a massive fire that has taken days to get under control.

Due to the tightened embargo and worsened by the COVID pandemic, the country's health system has faced a severe shortage of supplies in recent years. This situation is affecting the treatment of patients, including those affected by the current dengue outburst.

Many different medical supplies are needed: from intravenous fluids, to antibiotics, analgesics and wound care supplies. We are responding the call for humanitarian aid and are joining other organisations and the solidaridary movement.

Please donate whatever you can. No amount is too small.

Kindness and solidarity are powerful
