This project will provide 2 meals a day for 50 disabled people in Havana, Cuba. These people face severe physical and/or mental disabilities and have no way of obtaining food that is not provided through humanitarian efforts.


Cubans face many hardships throughout their lives in Cuba. Food rations are meager and food is much more difficult to come by in Cuba when you're disabled. Our organization has taken on the task of providing two meals a day, each day, for 35 disabled Cubans. The people that we provide for have no possible way of finding meals on their own, due to physical and/or mental impairments.

Long-Term Impact

Long term, the amount of starving disabled persons in Cuba will decrease. Hope will be given to the destitute and with your help we can expand this program to cover many more disabled people in the future. This program also provides work and a small weekly stipend to those that walk and hand deliver meals in the sweltering Cuban heat.
