CUBA CENTRAL NEWS BRIEF: 2/1/2019

February 1, 2019

Dear friends,

A message from Mauricio Vivero, from Friends of Caritas Cuba:

I am writing to you with an urgent request. On Sunday, a tornado ripped through Havana killing four people and injuring more than 195 residents. With wind speeds of up to 100km/hr (60 mph), the first tornado to hit the city in decades destroyed 123 buildings and cut power in poor neighborhoods.

Caritas Cuba staff have responded immediately and are coordinating support for the victims. The short-term need is to provide water, food, warm clothes and shelter for the victims. The longer-term focus will be to repair damaged or destroyed homes.

Please support this effort by making a donation to Friends of Caritas Cuba, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization and the official U.S. partner of Caritas Cuba.

From CDA, other ways to help: Several artists are collaborating on a benefit concert in Havana Saturday and OnCuba compiled a list of ways to donate funds and resources.
