Travel to Cuba with the Cuba and Venezuela Solidarity Committee, May 17-26!

The Cuba and Venezuela Solidarity Committee is organizing an important trip to Cuba this spring. The delegation will travel on a legal general license under the U.S.-permitted category of “Support for the Cuban people.”

In addition to cultural and educational visits, we will meet with medical providers in their clinics, and bring important medicines for the Cuban health system that are in short supply due to the effects of the 60-year U.S. blockade. The Hatuey Project (Health Advocates in Truth, Unity and Empathy) initiated and is partnering with IFCO/Pastors for Peace to carry out this mission bringing vital medicines for children with cancer. You will be an active part in the delivery of these supplies.

Most of all, we will share conversations with Cubans in all walks of life, from primary school children to people in their neighborhoods working to improve their community.

The trip begins in Havana on Friday, May 17 and returns to the U.S. on Sunday, May 26. We will visit other provinces as well.

The Cuban people are very friendly and welcoming, and in addition to our support, we will learn a great deal on how their free health care system and education works. We will learn from Cubans of their famed solidarity with people around the world and right here in the U.S. And we’ll also learn from the Cuban people how they are affected by the U.S. blockade, and what we can do to actively oppose that illegal policy.

You don’t have to know Spanish! We will have an interpreter all the time with us.
