See Cuba for Yourself and Challenge the US Blockade!
Join our Friendshipment Caravan this July - See Cuba for Yourself and Challenge the US Blockade.
This year, through an exciting educational and cultural program, we will celebrate the 24th Friendshipment Caravan to Cuba and 25th anniversary of Pastors for Peace!
In July 2013 host organizers in more than 35 cities will participate in Caravan Week, educating people about the blockade while collecting construction supplies and tools and medical supplies to be donated to our sisters and brothers in Cuba. Supplies should be light enough to be able to be taken by plane. If you have questions about the aid collection, please contact us at email@example.com.
This year we will visit Santiago de Cuba, which was hit hard by Hurricane Sandy, with caravanistas personally bringing construction and medical supplies. We will learn about disaster prevention and preparedness from our Cuban counterparts who have shown the world what it means to humanely deal with climate change.
